Nice idea. You could have a tune trying to find it's 'home' note but never quite finding it. Like a tune in A but the low A note is never sounded all through the tune, though the listener knows that's what's being sought, and that's where it wants to go. And just to complete the story, you could speckle the tune with some 'hen' sounds (do you know the tune The Hen's March to the Midden?) and hey presto, a story in a tune.

I hope you find the tune, but if you don't, you've inspired an idea and that can't be a bad thing.
