Diabelli Project 113 - Piece for solo marimba

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.

This week's flash composition sketch continues my nascent solo marimba piece. This section might be part of the same sketch as No. 102, which also plays the two mallets of the right hand off against those of the left. As this sketch continues, though, there's a movement from two to four voices in the music.

What happens next? I see a connection between this sketch and previous ones, but perhaps you see something different. As always, you can use any or all of the posted Diabelli Project sketches as you wish for free. Just be sure to share the results. I'm always curious to see what direction someone else can take this material.
