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.

Chuckanut was inspired by the composer�s participation in an Ultra-marathon known as the �Chuckanut 50K.� This 31-mile race encompasses the Inter-urban trail, starting in Bellingham at Fairhaven Park, and runs 6 miles along Chuckanut Drive to the Fragrance Lake trail. There it climbs up and down about 5,000 feet, making the journey to the top of Chuckanut Mountain twice before returning to the Inter-urban trail and back to Fairhaven Park. The first section of Chuckanut depicts the flat Inter-urban trail with the 210 runners running together in synchronicity. Gradually, they spread out and the rhythm gets a bit more complicated. The middle part covers the steep mountain trails. The rhythm slows down, changes meter and key to suggest heavy effort, and then gets a little chaotic (jazzy) to describe the Chuckanut Ridge section. Everything comes full circle back to the Inter-Urban and a return to the finish line, 31 miles later!

The MP3 file is a live recording done during the New Works, New Hope Concert performed at the Illsley Nordstrom Ball Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall, Seattle, WA. The piece was performed by Shorecrest High School Orcadian Choir, Leann Rozema, Director, and recorded by Brian Olendorf and Geoff Ogle on May 5, 2005. This concert was organized by The Seattle Composers' Alliance and Gilda's Club of Seattle.
