The following poem by Harold Pinter prompted the writing of �PINTER POEM�, a piece written for a poetry, jazz and strip-tease performance in my forthcoming medicine show.

Breasts, bottom, thighs, the whole palaver, I raise my hat to my uncensored sister. Who shone the light of love on those about her Who lusted longest on her black suspender. Harold Pinter, April 2005

Some years ago, at the Edinburgh Festival, I went to see a show titled �Philosophy & Strip-Tease�. To a packed house, a famous actor took the stage and delivered a philosophical lecture of great profundity and length, at the conclusion of which he said to the audience, �We promised you strip-tease; you have been very patient. Here it is�. At this point, a beautiful woman came on stage and slowly took off all her clothes. Brilliant! I want my medicine show to be as magical.

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.
