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.

Dance of the Storms was composed at the request of friend and fellow musician Fred Mariano for the newly formed Kapolei High School �Hurricanes� Winterline. I provided the concept as well mallet/auxiliary percussion parts, and Fred composed an impressive and challenging battery (marching drumline) part. This title really only relates to the fact that Kapolei High's mascot is the hurricane; no dance forms or styles were used or consulted, but the �storm� aspect suggested a structure of fast-slow-fast (the calm eye of the storm surrounded by fierce winds and weather), which became incorporated in the three-movement form.
Musically, much of this piece includes elements of Balinese and Central Javanese gamelan: Gongs and cymbals create a quasi-colotomic punctuation style, common in gamelan. The pelog and slendro tuning systems are emulated using pitches from the Western tempered scale. For example, the Javanese piece srepegan Kemuda (laras slendro pathet sanga), opening the second movement, uses only the notes C, D, F, G, and A, a pentatonic scale. Also, loud accented chords in Balinese gong kebyar are incorporated in the other movements despite the somewhat limited mallet ensemble. Additionally, the xylophone, glockenspiel, and vibraphone combine to create an interlocking melody, which is later elaborated using techniques from both Balinese and Javanese gamelan. The level of elaboration is usually a result of irama, which is also incorporated using drastic tempo changes resulting in a doubling or halving of rhythms.
For a better recording, please listen to the MP3 file (made using Virtual Drumline 2.5).
