Most of the scores being offered in this catalog are on rugged, stiff, large (11" x 14" or more) music paper stock connected accordion style, appropriate for pencil marking without back support or falling off music stands during rehearsal or performance. Two processes are used: a few of the early piano scores are copied from non-transparent music paper originals using a xerographic process; the rest are copied from transparent deschon ("onion skin") originals using a diazo chemical process similar to blueprinting called whiteprinting. Both of these score types are indicated in the catalog with a (M) notation.
A few of the scores are offered on normal, 8 1/2" x 11" xerox paper; these are indicated in the catalog with a (X) notation, and the prices are noticeably lower. In either (M) or (X) scores, page turns are carefully planned to ease in rehearsal and performance, and score legibility is excellent.
Not Nice Music is also glad to discuss rental of scores, and to negotiate royalty fees for performances.
The cassette tapes we offer for sale are professionally recorded, mixed and performed under the composer's supervision. Demo cassette versions of certain pieces are also available to qualified professionals; these are offered at cost, the tape and performance quality is often poor, but a good idea of the sound and performing difficulty of the piece can be ascertained. Interested producers and performers should send supporting documentation (company letterhead, business cards, resume, performance history, etc.) with their requests. Not Nice Music will gladly combine several pieces, to a total of 60 minutes, on a single cassette for a single cost of $1.00 (plus $2.00 postage and handling).
