Adhmad

for flute, cello, and percussion

Adam Scott Neal

2013


PROGRAM NOTE:

Adhmad (pronounced approximately “eye-mud”) is a Gaelic word for wood. As a

substance, wood can exhibit numerous textures depending on its source plant and

method of manipulation. This piece attempts to demonstrate an analogous range of

textures through articulation – sometimes smooth, sometimes rough, sometimes solid,

sometimes brittle.

PERFORMANCE NOTES:

1. The overall character of the piece should be quiet and delicate. Passages may be

played with slight rubato and should never feel too straight or march-like.

2. The fermati should be considered approximately 2-3 seconds, except where

indicated.

3. Boxes with the word “cue” are in the score (and parts) to indicate who should initiate

the next passage. This can be altered, but was based on rehearsal is generally the

player with the downbeat.

4. All cello indications for col legno will be col legno battuto.

5. The percussion part requires:

Triangle

Splash cymbal

Suspended cymbal

Wind Gong

Bongos

2 tom-toms

Bass drum, mounted with head horizontal

and the following beaters:

Superball mallet

rubber mallets

triangle beater

bow
