Please check out my website, and listen to the MP3, rather than the Scorch play-back. It sounds much better.(http://www.maternalgroove.com)

This one was inspired by a folk-singer, my niece, and a former neurotic co-worker. I attended a Dar Williams concert in February of 2008 at the Avalon Theater in Maryland, along with the meet-n-greet afterwards. While I was waiting in line, there was a young girl who had a picture of herself with Mz. Williams, taken previously at another concert. This little girl�s aunt made custom jewelry, and helped her niece make Dar a pair of earrings. Needless to say, when it was her turn to talk to the singer/songwriter, Dar Williams was very gracious and attentive to this little girl, taking out her own earrings and putting in the pair this girl had made, just for her. I thought to myself, �Wow, you really can see a person�s inner beauty. How can that be embodied to make at least one child at every concert venue feel that special? Simple, write a children�s song.� Needless to say, as long as that girl is alive, she will always remember Dar Williams.

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.
