The Dance of the Ghouls was an experiment for the pizzicato feature on the viola. I began composing the song not really intending for it to turn into an actual "song" so to speak. However, the more I fooled around with it the more spooky and scary the song became and I got engrossed with composing it. To tell you the truth, this song came together in a matter of only a few days! After completing the song I realized just how eerie the song had become and came up with the name "The Dance of the Ghouls".

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.
