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.

Fragmented Connexions explores how the Clarinet, Viola, and Piano can be blended in two ways: first, the instruments are made to sound like one another and second, the instruments are made to work together to form a single united timbre or one three-player instrument.�The work is unified by two common pitch rows (derived from the movement Soundscape) and the rhythms presented in Sonic Theatre I.
The follwing are taken from the notes in the score.
Fragmented Connexions consists of seven movements:
Sonic Theatre I
Sonic Theatre II
The piece can be performed in one of three ways.�First it is possible to perform the seven movements as documented above.�Alternatively, the movement order can be re-arrangedso long as the two Sonic Theatres frame position is retained.�The third method requires a creative approach by the players.�Each movement contains one or more � signs.�Each � denotes the end or beginning of a fragment.�For example, movement 3 (Scherzo) consists of four fragments (bb1-6, 7-23, 24-41, 42-55).�This third way allows the players to break the piece into its individual fragments and recompose the structure to form new movements.�It might be decided that a fragment from another movement is inserted at a given � or that the fragments are completely reassembled.�The two Sonic Theatre movements do not contain any � marks.�That said, they could be broken up in any manner the players see fit and could potentially be used as bridging material as well as framing movements.�When mixing or reassembling fragments, players can reuse individual fragments as many times as desired or exclude them completely, so long as the whole piece lasts between 7 & 15 minutes.�When joining some fragments, players will have to be judicious in their approach to linking them; minor changes can be made to the parts at the join points to accommodate such segueing.�Players should also be careful to consider physical limitations to the re-assembling process such as page turning and the use of special effects that require time to prepare (such as in Soundscape).�A possible way of dealing with the former issue is to photocopy the score and cut and paste it in the desired manner.�
Theatrical Production In live performance a number of theatrical devices can be employed to enhance the audiences experience.�In the following notes some suggestions for lighting and other elements are given.�In the case of a true fragmented performance (version three above), the theatrical design should be adapted to fit the fragmented structure in a suitable manner.
Sonic Theatre II Framing the work is an extended version of Sonic Theatre.�The sound world has thus moved full circle.�In a theatrical performance the players should be front-lit for this final movement with large shadows being cast on the back of the stage.�In the closing section (Machine winding down) the stage and auditorium lights should gradually be dropped to complete blackout.
