"Someday": a de/recomposition of Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg's "Over The Rainbow" from 'The Wizard Of Oz'.
"Someday" is the fifth in a series of works 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 modifying the structure and context of the original.
The composition is structured on melodic and harmonic reduction/distillation.
For soprano, electronics.
There's a land
Skies are blue
