I was fortunate enough to spend three years at Magdalen College, Oxford for my undergraduate studies. Recently, I was surprised and delighted to meet at fellow Magdalen man, Luke Berryman, at Boston University, where I'm working towards my doctorate in composition. Having been asked to write a piece for an upcoming recital of Luke's, I wrote 'Possible Worlds', a meditation both on the memorable bell chimes of Magdalen tower, and on the pure randomness of meeting a Magdalen graduate so far from home.

I was based briefly in Antigua city, Guatemala and so, in the course of this piece, various central American birds make an appearance.

I am grateful beyond measure to Luke for learning this challenging piece, and for performing its premier at a Composer's Concert at Boston University in October 2008.

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.
