Neal, Adam Scott : Parallel Lives
Adam Scott Neal (b. 1981) holds an MA in Sonic Arts from Queen's University Belfast, where he studied with Pedro Rebelo. He also holds a BM in music technology and an MM in composition from Georgia State University, where he studied with Robert Scott Thompson. Neal's music has been performed in the US, Europe, and Canada by such artists as the New York New Music Ensemble, the neoPhonia New Music Ensemble, and Tadej Kenig. Festival appearances include June in Buffalo, the Florida Electroacoustic Music Festival, Harvest Moon V, and Electronic Music Midwest. This collection consists of selected electroacoustic works from the past three years. Like the title track, this album explores the parallels and contrasts between the synthetic and the real, the ordered and the chaotic, and between the dissonant and the consonant.
