Album Notes
The Vignettes EP by Elegant Simplicity is a collection of 5 songs, thematically linked - stylistically similar - but different to each other!

* Note that this EP is atypical of our more Progressive flavoured work *

Originally released in 2009, this new version is substantially re-recorded with extra parts not present on the earlier release. In particular, check out the manic guitar on 'Scheming | Dreaming'!

The first track ONE TINY MOMENT OF JOY has skittish percussion and a synth solo that fair zips along before an unexpected acoustic guitar solo with a very Pink Floyd like progression!

The second song SCHEMING | DREAMING, if it were a wine, would be called a cheeky little number! Featuring a prominent mellotron and a completely in your face fuzz guitar workout, together with some random percussion and a delightful little synth melody, this is sure to please.

MOOD #9 features just guitar, Rhodes, flute and mellotron. Lovely piece of music.

SUMMER NOCTURNE is designed to invoke the feelings of a summer's day and is based around a melodic electric guitar part together with some sequenced bass pedals. Very lazy, languid song.

The final tune, WINTER NOCTURNE, is just that: the spirit of winter, evoked over two distinct movements. The first one (Warm) is all flute and moody mellotron and the second one (Cold) is an electric guitar melody playing in tandem to the sounds of an open fire.

Close your eyes and be carried away by the music . . . . .

Released 25 February 2013

Composed, arranged, performed, produced and engineered by Steven McCabe using acoustic and electric guitars, an assortment of synthesisers, percussion and many late nights . . . .
