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.

First performed by Coma South in the Southampton City Art Gallery 11th and 12 December 2004.

The music is inspired by the art work by Ben Langlands and Nikki Bell withthe same name.

Langlands and Bell based their work on Le Corbusier's vision for communal living. Up to 1600 people would like in 'unites d'habitation', raw concrete buildings, copies of which can be seen in most cities including Southampton. While the imitations have been reviled, the oridgnial 'unite' still works well as it was designed in a modular structure for functionality and space. The music is made up of small cells taking six notes of a scale, with the following cell taking the other six notes. The cells are modified in a similar way to Le Corbusier's interlacing of different apartment sizes; this process can also be seen in Langlands and Bell's work. From this raw beginning themes are allowed to develop, leading to the repetition of themes in both inversion and transposition of the ordginal idea."
