7. Morphing Images
Level 6: Montage
Much like President Obama's campaign in 2008, this song title promises change but largely fails to deliver. Sorry, I forgot, no politics at the dinner table... (separation of steak and state). 

The "morphing" suggested by the title comes from slight changes in the bass accompaniment to a constant, yet lopsided, chordal figure. The changing bass line builds in intensity and then quickly recedes as the song fades out.

With this piece, I sought to establish a constant somber mood. I associate this song with gazing out through the window of a car or train passing through a rural landscape.
