Diabelli Project 167 - Piano Piece

he 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.

Even a cursory look at my piano sketches will tell you I don't play very well. But the purpose of these flash compositions is to let the music flow unedited, and sometimes untrammeled by reality. There's been a recurring motif in these sketches recently. It's a series of ever-expanding intervals; a second, a third, a fourth. In other words, C-D-F-B. Or it could be C-D-F#-B, or even C-D-F-Bb.

That's really all that's going on here. Just building on that four-note idea.

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.
