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.

Sky Walking � an introduction

The Music Instrumentation- textures blending � instruments chosen more for the way they blend with the other instruments to produce different textures rather than using a standard classical orchestra � hence no Trumpets and Violas (no offence intended!)

The music starts with just solo piano being very free; dancing on the top of harmonies the other instruments are implying. In a way the piano is the main feature of the piece but the harmonies and it�s direction are dictated by the other parts.

This is an introduction to a larger work, or works which will explore each and every theme, melody rhythmic pattern to make either one large orchestral score or a few smaller �Theme of Variations�. I haven�t quite decided as yet.

The Playback

I composed this score with the GPO Sibelius Edition sounds so the groupings of instruments and textures created are from the blending of 2 or more Kontakt samples i.e. bar 19 where the Horn, Cello and Violin are playing in unison to provide a soft, yet brassy sound.

There are many MIDI controllers hidden to give more precise direction to the playback. These include Controller 7 to bring the volume right down for the accented notes in the Cello bars 9 and 17. As the Reverb was being kept up by Kontakt at those points I had to decrease that as well with controller 23.

The French Horn�s eerie call in the last few bars is made by taking the volume right down, but as it�s the Kontakt Player the amount of reverb sounds the same, giving the impression that the Horn is off-stage. This may only be heard in the MP3 rather than the Scorch score.
