Diabelli Project 151 - Piano Piece

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 sketch is something fairly simple. I started with a descending figure in the right hand, and an ascending one in the left. It didn't take long for things to go off track. I seemed to have kept the notion of contrary motion going throughout the sketch, though.

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.
