Prelude: "Vignette" was composed for the inaugural concert of the New Music New College 2010/2011 season. It's a fun and slightly eccentric piece, with virtuosic solos for both the guitar and the percussion amidst contrasting episodes of highly rhythmic rasgueado passages and quieter, almost folk-like moments of repose, somewhat reminiscent of Steve Tibbets' work from the Yr era.
