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.

Trio in 5-Movements (Visions of Space) No.3 �The Dancing Asteroids� for Flute, Bassoon & Pianoforte

The Five-movement Piano Trio was partly written in 1983 as part of my DMA docket of compositions. It was premiered at College Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati that same year. It is dedicated to my illustrious composition professor, Jonathan D. Krammer. The original 4 movements were revised in the year 2000. The 5th movement was appended in February 2002. Combining the forces of chance and unpredictability with moments of predictable structures, the 5-movement "Visions of Space" has manifested. The unpredictable elements concern quasi-random pitch selections, duration, degrees of intensity and distribution in time. One result of this compositional approach is that tonality gets sidelined in preference for atonality. Essentially, tonality is a particular expression of the general principle of relaxation of tension, which is a particular state that implies or demands resolution. Harmonically, the fundamental expression of tonality is the tonic/dominant relationship. When the harmonic underpinnings of a composition can be considered a derivative of this relationship or principle, in whole or part, for a long or short time, the music is considered tonal. Atonality then refers to compositions in which the composer deliberately banishes tonality. The work as a whole shows economy and extreme concentration that reflects the minimalistic approach to composition. Expressions that could be dramatized over 30 minutes may also be summed up in a minute or so, with all units of syntactic structure appropriately and proportionally represented.

The duration of the movements are as follows:

Vision-1 The Acidic rains of Venus - 1.00 Vision-2 The Frozen Lands of Andromeda - 1.30 Vision-3 The Dancing Asteroids - 1.30 Vision-4 Pleasures in Space Travel - 1.30 Vision-5 The Rivers of Earth - 2.30

The title "Visions of Space" suggests a programmatic dimension. The sub-titles of the movements were appended after the fact, however.
