-MUST PLAY MP3 - piano score is only useful for following MP3 recording. -"Sudden Successive Flights of Bullets Streak the Silence" is the first movement of my orchestra piece "Front Lines" 1982/4. The entire piece was premiered by the American Composers Orchestra in 1989. A piano reduction score is offered here. -Full orchestral score is available from the composer.

("Front Lines" is an instrumental adaption of music from the larger work "PRO PATRIA MORI". "PRO PATRIA MORI", a dramatic oratorio, scored for chorus, soloists, narrator, pre-recorded tape and large orchestra is based on the letters and poems of Wilfred Owen. In the instrumental adaption that is "Front Lines" the descriptive titles to each movement indicate its derivation to the larger work.)

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.
