"New Narratives Through Transformations Of Structure" is a series of compositions that 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.

Track Name: Blood For Speech
There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt.
All my pasts and futures
Were there with me.
A moon full of stars
I jumped in the river.
Track Name: Elegy For A Stranger
In the town
Lived a man

And he told us
Of his life.

We all live in the town.
We shall tell of our lives.
Track Name: Compound C21H23NO5
For always
For always

I want to be in your arms
You electrify me

You make me feel alive
I don't need anything else
It's more peaceful inside
With you

Floats just like a cloud
Holds me like an anchor
Made of the quietest shade of loud
Our love
Our love
Track Name: Someday
There's a land
Skies are blue

You'll find me.
