Diabelli Project 124 - Wind Trio

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 started out with the meter. The pattern is 3 quarter notes, 2 quarter notes, (for a total of 5), then 5 eighth notes (also subdivided into a group of 3 and 2) which collapsed the pulse of the previous two measures into one. Rhythmically, I'm pleased with the results. Melodically? Well, this is one I would like to spend some more time with...

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.
