Abstract: The present study uses Stravinsky's Histoire du Soldat as the focal point for an investigation into meter as a perceptual phenomenon. Through the analysis of several metric theories, a model of meter is presented that is flexible, dependant upon the individual listener's subjective experience. This concept emerges from contemporary theoretical writings, particularly the work of Lerdahl and Jackendoff, Jonathan Kramer, Joel Lester and William Rothstein. As opposed to the traditional notion of meter as a musical component fixed within the score, a more flexible model accounts for individual differences not only among various listeners, but also among an individual's own successive hearings. As evidence I cite examples within the writings of Igor Stravinsky as well as within the music of Histoire du Soldat. The first analysis is an examination of the opening movement, 'The Soldier's March,' while the second analysis focuses on a later section of the 'Three Dances' movement, the 'Waltz.' These diverse sections of Histoire demonstrate the range of metric flexibility within the work as a whole, from the smallest level of meter between adjacent measures, to the larger formations of hypermeter.
