This piece "Dobberen"(="Floating") was inspired by several other composers (a.o. Satie: gnossiennes, Schubert:"auf dem wasser zu singen", Faur?: barcarolles). This piece depicts a person floating on an airbed on a lake or swimming pool, contemplating the water he floats on, being the source of life. This small piece is one out of 4 miniatures, which i also recorded on a cd labelled "Water, the life source." More info on this cd can be found at Enjoy it!

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, 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 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.
