"Elegy For A Stranger" is the first 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 transforming the structure and context of the original.
The composition is structured on symmetrical transformations (inversion, retrogression and transposition). A synchronized structural analysis of this work can be seen here: http://www.emlynellisaddison.com/eleg...
For soprano, strings, harp and recorder choir.
