Pre Alice

Themes often have a life of their own. The original "Being Alice" theme is no different,  having a storied history. Here are examples of the theme in different iterations drawn from recent archival explorations. 

A Little Fantasy - A semi-jazzy classical work for solo flute and chamber ensemble - piano, strings and percussion.


Allegra - Teams of musicologists have argued for years that the very origins of the "Alice" motifs can be found in the music for the corporate video announcing the  release of the popular antihistamine Allegra. (Most explicitly stated at 9'10".)  But many other, more conservative thinkers, find this assertion to be scandalous and an affront to the legend of Alice herself.
