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.

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.

Full details

A new piece for the Dignity of Labour Ensemble, featuring (and dedicated to) the marvelous trumpeter Lina Alemanno. Born out of a jazzy section of a recently finished piano sonata, the piece explores parallel harmony in inner-voice perfect fourths, slight tempo contrasts, and a triple meter that sounds (and feels) quadruple.

A suitable explanation from a recent textbook on voice-leading:

I surely enjoyed finding out how odd it is that chance findings in the web can change one’s life into a digital counterpoint, where the burden of senseless googling will crucify aching shoulders, smiting the wicked with pies and ridicule, while, on the road to Damascus, young Franz and my lovely daughter, Sophie here, from Elysium, Ohio, [line missing] which is the reason why the flowers never [lines missing; something about a donkey?].

At the last moment, the threatening beast jumped on the escape key, sat up at the typewriter, singing "all the works of Shakespeare!" to a melody in parallell thirds, faintly related to the lamb chop cooking song of the Dorians, who for thousands of generations believed their flat space ships would return to Pluto. However, with the recent increase in downtown sailboat incidents, we find that we must be prepared. Maybe those reported ’navigation problems’ have a more sinister explanation.

They are here! Three blocks down, past the old railway station, and - watch their leader - the hairy spider next to the pink umbrella! She is morphing into - not the sun, nor the son - but a strange, dark shadow hovering over seven coal miners heading home from a hard day of chasing silent magpies through the stone age library.

If only there was some national policy on library book returns, said the first man - who was not afraid of mere rouge.
