On notating Swing rhythms

I am currently polishing up an arrangement for Glorious Morning for marching band when I hit a road block. You see, The entire piece is in a triplet swing, and whenever I have encountered this in marching band I always saw it as notated how to swing the notation right next to the tempo, but the piece has the first note both held and not in some places, so how should I go about notating this? Should I stick to 4/4, and just choose one to write as a triplet, and if so, what, or should I write it in 12/8 and leave a note saying "Conduct in 4?"

Question...

Hi, I'm just amateur composer and I want to ask you something: From which point do you consider score "experimental"? 
Aside of that, I started composing only this year and I would really appreciate someone else's opinion about my music. If you can take a look at my scores and tell me what U think I'd be really thankfull. 
Currently I'm working on piano piece called Rain. but I feel like the tempo chnges too many times. Do you think it's a problem?

Thoughts on this show idea?

So I had this idea for a show called "A Part". The show is about being apart, separated, from something but still being a part of that. In its essence, the show is about stars and how they are so lonely as individuals in the universe but they are a part of the universe, something much greater than themselves. This show theme is giving me really Blue Knights vibes and I just wanted your thoughts on if this could make a show. If anybody is interested I started writing some pit and soloist stuff that fits the theme really well, and if you want to take a shot at this theme I could send those over to you! Thanks for your thoughts, any comments are appreciated.

musescore issue getting a composition to play

apparently, now all of a sudden, I can only get my music to play if it is the default soundfont. If I use another soundfont library such as the SChristian Collins 1.471, it just processes indefinitely when I press play. I do not see a solution to this. If I can only use the default soundfont in uploads, it makes no sense to upload anything anymore. So, unless I can fix this, I won't be posting any more. So it goes.
