“Eka Dasa” is scored for four woodwind players, each doubling on percussion; one percussionist, and one double bassist. The score is in proportional notation, with approximate timings in seconds indicated at the top of each system. All players must read from a copy of the score and follow each other’s’ parts to determine when to play their own. Attacks or releases which occur simultaneously should be cued together. Long tones and rolls are notated with extended beams, their durations determined by beam lengths. Groups of notes beamed together are to be phrased and slurred together; notes beamed separately should be attacked separately and not slurred.
