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

Wounding Dart was written during the CoMA Contemporary Music Festival Summer School held at Doncaster College, High Melton Campus (UK) between 20th and 26th of July 2008. I attended a course called 'borrowed materials' led by Michael Zev Gordon. The course is best summed up by the summer school's flyer:

"Borrowed Materials: Transcription, transformation, quotation, collage, folk song, jazz, the classical past… this course explores the important role of borrowed materials in composition, and will help you to develop a new work to be performed by Rolf Hind and Joby Burgess towards the end of the course."

I decided to base my piece on the Dowland lute song Come Again! Sweet Love Doth Now Invite.

The piece was played in a workshop on the 24th July and first performed in concert by Rolf Hind and Joby Burgess on the 25th July 2008. The recording above is an extract from that performance.
