I wrote this song as part of a 10th grade English project in which I chose to read Michio Kaku's Parallel Worlds. The song is based on the phases of the universe as presented in this book, starting with the birth of the universe as the collision of two membranes. Then, stars begin to form. Next, the song moves on to beauty as the solar system and life form, after which sadness is heard as the universe dies. Then, beauty is once again heard as life survives by escaping to another universe.

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.
