Re: Creatoing a new notation for untuned percussion

I have taken a brief look at the document.  I would suggest that you transcribe some important music works for the percussion (Xenakis, Varese, Boulez, or similar) and simply make an endurance test.

Re: How do I price a work?

It depends, if you only want to get paid just for the print and the administration of it, or to collect the royalties in advance.
