This is also part of my "early" recorder music and the one I'm most proud of. I wrote it in just one night during a horror movie in 1990. Playing this music is a thrilling experience: a player should have a rather advanced technique for playing the notes right, but playing this short piece together is much more difficult. My ensemble enjoyed it very much, because, when all notes come together, it's a great piece of music.

November 22, 2007: After 17 years finally the notes after bar 25 came into my conscious. A thrilling experience: not finishing this excellent music, which is as close to me as music can get, felt like loosing something I knew that was somewhere in me. The end became quite complex though.

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.
