My 38th Symphony is in 8 movements. I subtitle it "The Octopus" because it's 8 movements are controlled by an octotonic 8 note theme which dominates the third movement, and the keys of the eight movements follow the notes of the theme. The first movement is entitled "Kaleidoscope of morphing ideas". When you drift into sleep, particularly during the day, you often get unconnected images merging into each other in a random way as you fall asleep. This movement seeks to do just that. It has no discernible form. It’s also very silly!

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.
