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.

Full details

Zen is a progressive/polystylism piece written for a weird variety of instruments. Some players can play more than one instrument, but this is left totally up to the players themselves..

Zen describes a mans sleep in which he realises he is a schizophrenic. Others around him know he is, and he has been told, but this piece is his actual realisation. The piece is progressive, so it doesnt neccasarily link together, and it changes quite a bit. Some people may scorn at this, but I believe if you have good enough reason, then the 'rules of music' can be twisted slightly. And I do have a reason. Also, each part is sectioned off accordingly. A full analysis of these sections and what is happening in them can be given on request..

EDIT (3/2/08): I have added an mp3 file which I created using Reason 3.0. It took me many weeks to create this file, and it is the full 16 minutes of this piece. It sounds more like what I wanted to created than the MIDI, nowhere near perfect because I was still learning Reason, but far better than the mp3. Please listen to the mp3. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the story!
