Metamorphosis 2 is usually presented closed, in either form (first or last).
The chord changes:
- its direction;
- its position in the series of fifths (1 FRAME away);
- the swing to which it belongs;
(2 fifths away - with the metamorphosed chord in interior positions);
- the note which acts as Orbit 0 (the COMMON TONE);
- Orbit 2 and Orbit 3 replace each other,
- the note which was Orbit 2 becomes Orbit 3 and that which was Orbit 3 becomes Orbit 2.
-We have here the following chords:
C6 - with a Substitution 1(3), followed by the MOTRIX A, in the Alto;
G71 Dm65- Metamorphosis 2 - with a Substitution 1(0), in the Bass
which removes both the G, Orbit 0 of G71 and the A, Orbit 0 of Dm65.
Each of these two notes serves as Orbit 0 on one chord and
as a Non-chordal Tone of Orbit 0 on the other.
By having the chord Incomplete we avoid this incompatibility altogether.
Am7 - with a Substitution 1(3), followed by the MOTRIX G, in the Soprano;
Dm65 G71- Metamorphosis 2 - with a Substitution 1(0), in the Tenor.
The chords of Rest (on the Beat), C6 and Am7, were first presented as Real Triads
to differentiate them from each other.
