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.

Although numerous composers have done so inadvertently, I believe this piece represents the first conscious attempt in music to set a Shakespearean tragedy several hundred meters underwater. Even the finny creatures of the deep are, deep down, just like us, and have the same feelings, heartaches, and ultimately futile emotions.

Despite my sometime efforts to stop writing blues and bossa novas, explorations at the piano often end up generating pieces in these seemingly inexhaustible idioms. Unlike some similar ventures into this musical territory, This piece is, in effect, through composed.

I have included a sample solo section here, for folks who might want to download this one and play along with it. The restatement of the melody after the solos is significantly different than the first time, including a lengthy coda. The aim was to generate the sense of a larger whole, as if the melody restatement reflects the ideas of the intervening soloists.

Dedicated with the greatest love and enthusiasm to my dear son Timothy.
