An experimental piece, that deals with some of the pressures that can destroy creativity…

Written in response to a request from a John White, who was gave a short series of seminars to members of the Forum Composers of London on Music Theatre.

The brief was to portray "Human to Machine". The angle I took was to portray the human with the ability to be creative having that creativity vrtually destroyed by those who think they know best. However, in reality cannot think themselves and try and get others to not think eiher.

I extended the brief, becuase I wnated there to be some hope at the end, however it doesn't end that happily.

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.
