Some time ago a friend asked me to make a little demo for a fan film, featuring some kind of march for the bad guys. Since this film played in the Star Wars universe, it's obvious who the bad guys are. I used the opportunity to combine my learning of Sibelius (this is the 2nd score I made with it) with another thing I wanted to do for a long time: Throwing orchestral masses at the audience for extended amounts of time without getting boring (insert smile here)…. So this is some kind of suite, featuring one main melody and multiple variations of it. Later a second melody is introduced, but it returns to the first one very soon. Please note that the "kid-in-the-candyshop"-syndrome is very strong in this piece of music - nearly everyone wants to try all the neat functions, being new to Sibelius….

Update: Thanks for giving me 200 views! Please note that this piece is merely meant as a test for the themes. Thus it is the worst of my published pieces, but still gets the most hits. Strange… But please listen to my other pieces too. I really can write some decent music!!

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

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

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.
