OBJECT

for small orchestra

Adam Scott Neal

2014


PROGRAM NOTE

Philosopher Graham Harman's “object-oriented ontology” describes the complex

relationships that objects have with one another. To Harman, everything is an

object, and every object is related to objects larger and smaller than itself. The

orchestra is one such object – it is made of many objects (instruments and people,

but also music stands, stages, paper, etc.) but is also part of a larger concept (music).

A given composition can likewise be thought of as an object. It is made of many

parts, but is part of the larger discourse of music. That is why each composition is

only a “piece” of music.
