Home > String orchestra > A Story Which Takes Place in the Great Outdoors

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! ;-)

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.
