Adam Scott Neal (b. 1981, Atlanta) is a composer whose work ranges from chamber music to video to tinkering with homebrew electronics. Described as "exquisitely crafted" (Creative Loafing), his pieces reflect a fascination with objects and technologies - namely, their capabilities, limitations, and shifting cultural meanings. Adam's music is relatively minimal, encouraging listeners to focus on the details that make instruments unique and beautiful. Groups for whom he has composed include Bent Frequency, Beo String Quartet, Chamber Cartel, Guidonian Hand, Iktus Percussion, and loadbang. Adam earned a PhD at the University of Florida and currently works at East Carolina University.
