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.

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.

Full details

This piece is composed of 12 tone theory telling an ancient Chinese famous story. The story teller(s) will tell the story with the music.

Journey to the West

By Wu Cheng’en in 1500.

Monk - Tang Seng Tripitaka, was a traditional honorific for a Buddhist monk) is the Buddhist my onk who set out to India to retrieve the Buddhist scriptures for China.

Monkey - born from a stone nourished by the vital essence nature for five hundred years, who learns the art of the Tao, 72 polymorphic transformations, combat, and secrets of immortality, and through guile and force makes a name for himself as the Qíti�n Dàshèng OR "Great Sage Equal to Heaven". HE was trapped by Buddha under a mountain and sealing the mountain with a talisman for five hundred years.

The most intelligent and violent of the disciples, he is constantly reproved for his violence by Tang Seng. Ultimately, he can only be controlled by a magic gold band that the Bodhisattva has placed around his head, which causes him bad headaches when Tang Seng chants certain magic words (Band-tightening Spell).

He uses a As-You-Will Gold-banded Pole, he travels by somersault cloud, one jump for 180,000 miles

Pig - Eight-precepts. He was previously Marshal Tīan Péng, commander of the Heavenly Naval forces, banished to the mortal realm for flirting with the Princess of the Moon Chang’e. He is characterized by his insatiable appetites for food and sex, and is constantly looking for a way out of his duties, which causes significant conflict with the Monkey. Nevertheless he is a reliable fighter.

Friar Sand - He was previously Great General who Folds the Curtain, banished to the mortal realm for dropping (and shattering) a crystal goblet of the Heavenly Queen Mother. He is a quiet but generally dependable character, who serves as the straight foil to the comic relief of the Monkey and Pig.

Lady White Bone - demon corpse with magic power

The white bone first time appeared as a little girl, who was killed by the monkey. The white bone then pretended to be the grandma of the girl and was killed by the monkey again, then she showed us as grandpa and was killed again by the monkey, this time she really died and revealed her truth as white bone.

This piece is particularly good for Children’s concert as contemporary music education material.
