This work was written for the guitarist Gerald Garcia who premiered it at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. It is the second of 4 parts - although I have never transcribed the other movements on to Sibelius. Please note when hearing this via MIDI many of the notes heard will be wrong! Notably on the harmonics and plucking behind the LH.

I have now uploaded an mp3 file taken from an old cassette recording made in 1986 at a concert in Totnes, Devon played by Jackie Roxborough. Jackie firstly introduces some of the techniques used before playing the piece.

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.
