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.

Performance Information

This composition is a theme-and-variations not in the traditional sense, in that the theme is modulated, inverted, augmented, and otherwise altered, but instead is more of a collection of colorful vignettes that built off of the same conceit. The "theme" in this case is the general conceit of vastness and awe inherent in Canada's Northwest Territories, a place my family called home for about five years. Each movement in turn represents an icon of the land. As follows: 1. The Birds and the Cessna Caravan. imagine being on the deepest freshwater lake in North America. Flocks of Canada geese, red-throated grebes gaggle overhead, and perhaps a bald eagle soaring. Coming from Yellowknife, a bush plane's propellers crescendo as it remains the most practical source of travel for many regions. 2. The Wolf-Dogs Howling at the Church Bells. It is Sunday morning. While the human congregation's numbers fluctuate considerable, one can always count on every dog in the community, like cockerels in the morning, breaking into a long, woeful chorus of blue fervor. 3. The Fish. In the community where my family lived, Lutsel K'e, its name translates from the Dene for "Place of the Small Fish." That is a misnomer. But then again, ninety-five percent of the fish are found in five percent of the water, and sometimes they put up a considerable fight as they surface from the pure fathoms. 4. Caribou and Arctic Cats and Finale. Perhaps the most important source of red meat for the people of Lutsel K'e are the vast herds of caribou that regularly migrate from the Barrenlands to the Taiga. Although their migration patterns have fluctuated slightly because of the diamond mining, the hunters roll out on their twenty-first-century Arctic Cats and live.
