Venice has always been a special city for artists. Its hold on me started in 1984, and the grip has tightened following a return visit in 2004.

The brief three movements of lagoon music ? i (sketches) are an immediate response to my visit, similar to Turner?s sketchbooks. The work and the movements are not complete, but starting points for future works, sketches.

i ? canal and campanile, is a soundscape of morning near San Marco, the water gently lapping and the bells interrupt the morning silence. ii ? reflections I, is a playful left hand (staccato) right hand (legato) mirror, but the reflections in the right hand are not always exact replicas, just like the movement of water disturbs the original. iii ? reflections ii, is a more dramatic movement, like the disturbance of water in the wake of a boat.

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.
