Winner of the Making Music Award at the British Composer Awards 2008.

The sky�s various colours have long been used to foretell change in the weather and seeing green sky - particularly in the heartland of America - can mean the impending arrival of storms, cyclones or other torrential phenomena.

The piece has an unusual musical atmosphere of tension, turbulence and most of all, release; the orchestra is invited to explore alternative instrumental sounds and venture out of familiar comfort zones. The style is unashamedly cinematic and helps to conjure up images of nature at it most violent, tranquil and unpredictable - mostly at the same time.

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.
