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.

Full details

(From my program notes): Emergence depicts a musical journey through a timeline of our society. Emergence showcases the emergence of mankind from its inception to its hopeful future, all while exploring its ever-changing yet cumulative nature. For millennia, we have suffered many hardships and difficulties, but have still prospered to this day. Emergence celebrates humanity, as it has grown from a mysterious presence into a wonderfully advanced and diverse group.

Emergence is divided into four short sections:

I. Genesis � Quietly opening and building (symbolizing the pre-human period) until the glorious point where humanity is founded and recognized. II. Rise and Fall � Introduced by a quiet saxophone solo which accompanies aseries of aural rises and falls ultimately growing to a dominant section, which quickly collapses. This section represents the �rises and falls� of ideas, beliefs, and phases that societies undergo during their lifetimes. III. Renaissance � An ode to the reform in societal structure and complexity, marked by a short march but followed by an extended variation of a secondary theme from the previous section. A �rebirth� of humanity is also presented. IV. Beyond the Horizon � Written in major key to emphasize the optimism and hope for the future. Bits and pieces of the previous three sections are combined to create a driving, powerful conclusion.
