Update 2014: Haven’t updated it for a long while, use at your own risk!
Thought it’s high time I complete at least a phase of this project that I wanted to do since Jan 08. It was a good Sunday well spent, from learning and plagiarizing to actually accomplishing a pretty decent wordpress plugin. It’s no where near 100%, maybe 70% I guess, but it provides what I’ve always wanted – an easy way to post scores to blogs.
Here’s a sample score (if you do not see anything, you need to install Sibelius Scorch plugin):
The motivation for Sibelius Embed is simple. Apart from the complete works that I write and publish, there are times where nuggets of music just needs to be written down. It’s like blogging right, you have journalists who write full length articles on the papers, and then snippets on their blogs. And maybe, a composer / arranger would turn his or her blog into a place to collect ideas, and maybe refer to them in the future why the symphony is put together.
If you’re interested, you can download and play. I’ve started collecting my wordpress plugins here. When I have time (let’s see, that would be July 09 based on my calendar) maybe I’ll do more on the ones I already wrote or write some more.
