I project this theme of uncertainty through a musical piece, divided into 3 segments. The first, which pays an ugly tribute to The Resident's track Guylum Bardot, introduces the listener to an unpredictable collage, that grows worse upon listen. The second arrangement, being the main piece, uses each instrument to paint the overwhelming feelings that can occur when one is unsure where the moment will take them next. Having no hold of your life's steering wheel. Its conclusion however, reminds us that things eventually find a way of working out, leaving us to be a stronger and more experienced character.
