about

"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.

lyrics

Lyrics:
Somewhere
There's a land
Somewhere
Skies are blue

Someday
You'll find me.
