WORK IN PROGRESS - Double Piano piece.

Firstly, let me explain the title.

"CN2" means that this piece is the second instalment of my "Cumulus Nimbus" double piano piece (still not happy with that name), using the same theme but entwined in the music rather than being brought to the foreground.

"Gregynog" is the name of a Conference Centre in Mid Wales in which I got the inspiration to write this piece. For my third year Computer Science degree at the University of Wales Swansea, we all take a trip down to Gregynog to give presentations on our project, to hear presentations about employement, phd life and so on, then all join together students & lecturers for a nice pissup each night at the bar! They also had two pianos and an organ I had a play on during our free time, and so I give you this.

The general idea is that the two pianos are duelling to play the most impressive music, easily seen in the middle section where one piano is playing percussive lower quavers while the other plays a tune over the top. The first piano shows what he's made of, but when it comes to their turn the other the piano thinks "I can beat you! See, I put two chords at the beginning instead of one, and I have nice octave leaps and runs, you don't!" You get the idea!

As I said above it's a work in progress, and I intend to continue the 'nicer' idea just introduced… but I've hit a brick wall about 27 miles thick! I haven't been able to write anything more that's good for several months now…

So, any suggestions and thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

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:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

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.
