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

Conceived as a slightly tangential piece incorporating tone-changing and a metronome, but it is tonal and "audience-friendly". I have since re-written it so that it may be performed equally well without the metronome and renamed "Pacemaker". It is your choice! The sets of music are identical. Written for a minimum of 4 Bb clarinets, the parts can easily be doubled up to make a much larger ensemble.

If you like being theatrical then use the metronome. Ideally use an old-fashioned, wooden, clockwork metronome, placed centrally and ceremonially on a stool in centre-stage and start before the performers go on stage (a stage-hand in a white coat or other costume, perhaps?). Performers should then walk on in sequence for their entries. The metronome will need to be loud enough for the performers to hear clearly. If you have a clockwork metronome, wind it up so that it lasts for the duration of the performance (about 5min 20secs) so that it runs down soon after the performers have finished. If you need to use an electronic metronome or an iPhone App, get a stage-hand (or performer) to carry it off-stage at the end of the performance (still "ticking"), ideally down a long corridor so that you hear it "ticking" further and further away for as long as possible.

Although the piece uses tone-changing (fingerings are marked) it is not hard to play - except, of course, that you need to be able to play in time to a metronome!!
