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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

SONG is from a three movement piece titled "A Song, a Hymn & a Chant" scored for large orchestra w/large percussion section.
The piece is based around the tune "Reflection of the Moon on Er Lake" by the Beijing street violinist Hua Yan-Jin. It's played in bits and pieces throughout by the pitched percussion and later by the full orch. with a nod to the 'Yellow River'(sic) style of orchestration.
Sorry, but with much of this piece it's not possible to get even an approximate playback thru MIDI/Scorch (at least not with my equipment/sound card/etc.). If you'd like to try pages 8-14 the playback at this point in the piece gives a decent idea of the music.
>As a little programme aside, I was trying to capture in sound the pathetic paradox of a poor, street violinist playing his lovely little tunes amidst the absurd din and post-modern developmental chaos of 21st century Beijing.
>Btw the associated score link, "Night Piece #3 Dreamscape" is a piano solo version of the orch. piece.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
