'Vignettes' began in 1996 as a series of compositional sketches. They were a snapshot of my psyche during the darkest fall and winter of my life. The compositions sat in one form or another on the shelf until the winter of 2006. I revisited these sketches, re-orchestrated and captured them via the same methods I used for film-score mock-ups. It is a macabre, introspective and avant-garde collection.

Compositionally, each movement centers around a three note harmonic structure. The 'Entropies' are a further exploration of the harmony in each section of the orchestra represented in an ambient, minimalistic style. They culminate in the final Entropy which is a layering and collection of the harmonic, rhythmic and motivic structures found throughout 'Vignettes'.
