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.

What can I say; this piece is impossible to play.

I was intrigued by another composer's idea that there is no point in putting emotion into a midi file because a computer can never play it back with emotion plus he made a point of making everything he writes impossible, even when he wants it played.

So I wrote this with the following rules in mind.

It must be impossible to play but, at the same time, be tonal and, at first glance, look playable There should only one dynamic - ff in this case The tempo should be rock steady, no rubato, accels or rits.

For those that know my work, this is a "bee in my bonnet" piece.

It was interesting exercise writing it as the absence of any of the typical emotion markings actually gave the piece its structure so much so that to put variations in tempo or dynamics would have resulted in a totally different work.

Note: There is actually some feel to the piece as some emotion is supplied by the "Espressivo" in the Sibelius Performance settings. I tried it with this turned off and it sounded dreadful; a tribute to the Sibelius Programmers indeed.
