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 is the overture to the piece I am in the process of writing. it is music that will define the dramatics and dynamical emotions the reader can utterly feel as he/she would read The Wasteland. It does not follow as if you were reading the poem while listening to the music, rather I recommend reading the poem then listening to the music,a nd allow the music to paint a picture in your head. The rest of the music will be coming as soon as I get the permission rights from T.S. Eliots publisher to use the lyrics from The Wasteland within my music. There will be five more parts that go along with each section of the poem: 1. The Burial of the Dead 2. A Game of Chess 3. The Fire Sermon 4. Death By Water 5. What The Thunder Said As for now, however, I present to you the… Overture!
