Abstract"Vignettes" explores the transformation and exchange of musical foci among the parameters across three miniatures of contrasting characters. The piece begins with a slow tempo along with a simple and rather static pitch collection, with the goal of drawing attention to the more elaborate musical interests in timbral variations, micro-tonal portamento of expressive purpose, and ornamentation of melodic lines. Over the course of the next two vignettes, the tempo grows faster, the idea of the line is gradually transformed to pointillistic exchanges among the instruments, and the pitch collection becomes increasingly saturated, showcasing and contrasting the expressive potential of the Chinese and Western instruments.
