Diabelli Project 105 - Marimba Solo

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.

Just to review, the "rules" for my flash composition exercise are pretty simple. Just write for 10 minutes; any style, any instruments (or combinations thereof), any length. And stop after 10 minutes. I try not to prepare for the exercise, just seeing what comes out when the clock starts.

This week, another solo marimba sketch emerged. (See previous installments here.) It's time to start stitching these segments together.

Of course, if you see some possibilities here, don't wait for me to flesh out this sketch. As with all the Diabelli Project posts, you're welcome to use this in your own work. Just be sure to share the results!
