London, UK (PRWeb UK) June 26, 2009
NOTION Music Ltd. has announced a major distribution agreement with Faber Music at the London International Music Show (LIMS). Faber Music is a leading British publisher and distributor of classical, contemporary, popular, educational and media music. Faber will now have exclusive trade distribution rights in the UK for all of NOTION Music's notation software products, including NOTION and PROGRESSION.
Kris Karra, Managing Director of NOTION Music Ltd. said, "I'm really pleased to be working with Faber Music's award-winning Music team. I have been very impressed with their distribution systems, sales, and marketing departments and hear nothing but praise for the level of service and professionalism they provide. The NOTION Music line of software products fit nicely into the Faber Music portfolio - complimenting rock/pop, classical and educational lines. Working with Faber Music gives us immediate entry into over 600 retail accounts, and grants NOTION Music a partnership with one of the best music publishers in the world."
Phillip Littlemore, Sales and Marketing Director of Faber Music Ltd. commented "Faber Music has an enviable position as the best music distributor in Europe. We have, until now, specialised in the distribution of printed music but the addition of NOTION Music Ltd. to our stable of fine names allows us to venture into new channels of distribution. We look forward to an exciting future together."
NOTION Music first captured the attention of the music industry in 2005 when they introduced NOTION, a music notation software program with a built-in sample library from the London Symphony Orchestra. NOTION's patented technology enables musicians to hear their composition played back instantly with the sounds of a full Orchestra. The realistic playback, coupled with the patented NTempo feature to dynamically control tempo, has made NOTION a popular tool for composers and as an accompaniment tool in live performance settings.
The partnership with Faber marks another positive step for the company's UK office, which opened last year to support NOTION's international sales and marketing efforts. The office is working aggressively to expand NOTION's worldwide distribution and to establish relationships with music schools and institutions across Europe. As part of the agreement, Faber Music will be handling all UK trade orders and enquires for NOTION's four music notation software products:
- NOTION - A full featured, professional music notation program that provides composers with the brilliant sounds of the London Symphony Orchestra recorded at Abbey Road Studios. RRP £199.95
- PROTÉGÉ - A light version of NOTION geared towards students and hobbyists. All the same high quality professional sounds, for up to eight staves. RRP £47.95
- PROGRESSION - Guitar notation and performance software that covers all elements and instruments within rock and pop music. A favourite among guitar teachers worldwide. RRP £57.95
- NOTION Conducting - An innovative conducting curriculum that uses NOTION software technology to help students and teachers master the art of conducting. RRP £79.35
Reflecting on the significance of the announcement, Karra said, " has made great strides in a relatively short period of time. Our relationship with Faber Music now positions us to be even more successful in the years to come as we continue to develop and launch new products for musicians."
