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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

Air VI is the fourth in a series of 8 pieces written between 2000 and 2001 exploring the idea of twisting harmonic relationships. My first experiment was to rewrite a Bach prelude swapping all of the chord implications with new ones - it sounded wonky, but kept its shape. The idea arose from a desire to imitate some of the qualities in much of Bach�s music that are so appealing - joy, singularity of focus, purity of emotion. The aim was to develop a language that seeks to reproduce the harmonic pulls of classical cadences while avoiding chords IV and V. The eight pieces use a bizarre circle of not-fifths, each of the 12 keys having a unique combination of unrelated chords and its own peculiar scale. Air VI is in C, and goes through the keys of F# (the acting sub-dominant) and A (the acting dominant). It lasts approximately 4 minutes, exploring each register of the piano, in an almost rhapsodic manner, sounding freely-composed, although of course it is actually very carefully written!!!
