Which method of viewing music should I use?
Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:
You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.
Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.
Printing after purchase
After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

This music has it`s origins in the 1960`s, when a group of eight U.S. academically trained college musicians formed one of the first jazz/rock bands, to bring to the world so early in the history of "rock’n’rock" a sound so vibrant and innovative, it is still very much influencing many serious composers in addition to the ’rockers’. I penned this music in 1981, several albums down the line for B.S.& T. but have now made revisions to make it also viable for interested string orchestras, (and quartets) to realise the kind of rhythms that jazz/rock gives us, thanks to the pioneering vision of these American musicians, who still command a world-wide following. There are no ’quotes’ in what you are about to hear. This music is not intended to copy nor to plagiarize: it is a serious attempt to not re-create, but to create new sounds and rhythms for strings. This then, is my original effort, which I hope may be taken up, interest, and enable other musical genres to appreciate an exclusive work written for them, many of whom will have only experienced this kind of music as ’backing’ session musicians. I saw ’Blood, Sweat and Tears’ only once. In spite of their untidy appearance (the 'rebelious sixties') their music was indeed of a quality which London had only experienced before in houses similar to the Festival and Barbican concert halls.
