Diabelli Project 024 - 2-Part Invention in E Aeolian

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

Another simple two-part invention this time, although there's a slight wrinkle. Instead of being in E minor, it's actually in E Aeolian mode. The tip-off is the lack of D-sharps that would give the piece a B major chord to act as the dominant.

How this invention unfolds is up to you, although this may be one I finish myself. All I ask is that if you decide to use this material, just share the results.
