Play mp3 for correct rendition, listening through high quality headphones. Playing the score for some reason (midi) produces a excessive saxophone volume. A dreamy piece illustrating thoughts one might imagine while peacefully resting, perhaps on a cliff-top, looking out to sea watching the setting sun, and contemplating, for example, �the meaning of life�, or God, and the enormity of the universe in which our world is a mere speck.; which probably makes us �specklets�, a new word for the dictionary perhaps? The singer should follow the tenor saxophone tune, but is free to harmonize where necessary if voice range limitation is an issue. I imagine a voice colour and singing style such as that of Ella Fitzgerald. The tune came first and the words almost wrote themselves as I played through it. There are a few slight pauses (pause for thought perhaps), so don�t think the timing has slipped.

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.
