Elegy For A Stranger” is the first of five works in the New Narratives Through Transformations Of Structure series. These compositions explore melodies as memes—musical ideas that are propagated through repetition—and how, through processes of variation and mutation, their meaning is altered.

Preserving only the core melodic and/or lyrical elements that provoke recognition, new and unexpected narratives emerge by transforming the structure and context of the original.

For soprano, strings, harp and recorder choir.
