“Turns the various states of water into a metaphor for a difficult first date over drinks during “Phase Change,” Hornsby’s piano climbing the ladder of yMusic’s pizzicato plucks and woodwind smears.”


Phase Change

The conversion of matter from one state to another is called a phase change, occurring when a large amount of energy is gained or lost. Phase change depends on factors like pressure and temperature. Of those mentioned in the song:

  • Condensation – the change from gas into liquid form
  • Vaporisation – the change from liquid into gas
  • Freezing – the change from liquid into solid form
  • Melting – the change from solid into liquid form

(leaving “sublimation” – the change from solid into gas form). See also: Wikipedia.
