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.

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.

Full details

This piece was written as a tribute of sorts to the Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe. The aim of this piece was not to sound like Sculthorpe at all, but is instead based in a similar conceptual vein as his music; that being programmatic and depicting a part of the Australian landscape. As the title suggests, the piece represents the inherent mystery of walking through the mists of a marshland.

The melodic and harmonic lines of this piece are meant to blur together as clouds of mist do. Hence the two hypnotic chords of the harp are not dampened as the harmonies change. Also, the buzzing sound produced by the rapid repeated low notes on the harp is desired, as the sonority is intended to add to the misty and unclear atmosphere.

The available recording was recorded on Sunday, the First of May, 2005 by Naomi Ham.
