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.

This solo Flute part is imitated Japanese traditional instrument that is called Shakuhachi and is made by bamboo. This traditional instrument is normally has 5 or 6 holes and performer produces many amazing sounds by swinging/moving instrument and also using mouth a lot. Especially the Shakuhachi has many kind of special styles of playing, which is expressed by using lots of portamento and glissando. This piece has three sections, first is image of bamboo grove, the sounds occur vertically by the Shakuhachi as the way a tree grows. Second section is based on ostinato by each instrument, which is imitated the sounds of Buddhist Chant. These are gradually piled up, it is really like in the Temple � which is many priest are reciting a sutra. The sounds are repeated many times as same tempo again and again.
