Below are a few pieces which I have decided to send out into the world gratis. These are mainly pieces with odd instrumentations. They are registered with BMI, so please send me a program if you play them! I can get a few bucks that way.

a prelude — variable instrumentation

This is an indeterminate piece for variable ensemble. It is played to a stopwatch, and there is no score.

Download individual parts:

Winds: Flute | Oboe | Clarinet | Alto Sax | Tenor Sax | Bassoon

Brass: Trumpet (C) | Horn (F) | Trombone | Tuba

Percussion: Vibraphone | Percussion | Piano | Narrator

Strings: Violin | Viola | Cello | Bass

Figures in Bas-Relief — flute, clarinet, cello, piano, percussion

This is an indeterminate piece, performed with stopwatches.

5th W — baritone voice, trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet

This was composed for loadbang, which has an unusual instrumentation!

Keys — piano, percussion, electronics

This is a big piece (17 minutes) for pianist and percussionist, each doubling on other instruments such as toy piano, kalimba, and typewriter. It has a fixed media track as well. You can download the score and track below.

Mirror Universes

These are indeterminate duos, but they can be performed together as a set, or even overlapping.

  • I — viola & vibraphone
  • II — clarinet & percussion
  • III — trombone & vibraphone
  • IV — saxophone & percussion
  • V — guitar & percussion
  • VI — vibraphone & percussion

Searching for Coincidences — flute duet

This is a “choose your own adventure” piece. Each player can choose among 5 choices in every phrase. Sometimes the parts match up, but most often not.

Splatter Scores

Splatter Score interpretations by percussionist James W. Doyle

I made splatter paintings on used CD cases and layered them. You can interpret them as graphic scores.

I have 8 remaining physical Splatter Scores looking for a good home. Email me if you would like to purchase them! adam at
