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.

Whilst riding the train over the Manhattan Bridge one afternoon I found myself humming what eventually became one of the themes of this piece. I see the Great Plains states of the U.S. I see fields and big sky country at some times and I see strange things at other places in the music. It seems to come from another century, but has taken refuge here with us. This is of course a first draft - there are many things which need tweaking eventually. I've added a personalized font to the title - the font had the word Dakota in it, sorta reminded me of this piece's outdoorsy feel. Please enjoy:) An improved mp3 added 2010-05-27. Still not perfect, but better balanced and now plays from both speakers! ;-)
