A pile of scores in the Catacombs


 
 Damian with Frank Oteri
Frank Oteri and Damian enter The Catacombs, where thousands of scores are stored, organized, and made available to performers across the world.

 
 The Catacombs I
The Catacombs I: The boxes contain media -- CDs, cassettes, videotapes, LPs, 78s, and dozens of other formats -- for preview in the American Music Center's offices.

 
 The Catacombs II
The Catacombs II: New scores are sorted and added to the archive. Member composers are entitled to contribute one score or bound collection per year, and may include additional scores for a fee.

 
 The Catacombs III
The Catacombs III: Despite the appearance of score heaps, the music is carefully organized and being integrated into an information services database.

 
 Information Services
Information services area under development. Scores range in size from standard and pocket sizes through huge two-by-three-foot graphical presentations.
