Diabelli Project 011 - Two-part Invention

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.

At this point I had been dashing off these little five-minute musical sketches for about two months. And the ideas were starting to flow. The original had all the notes squished together -- I was surprised when I copied it that the music expanded out to two staves. (click to enlarge)

Remember, you can use all, some, or even just a snippet of these sketches in your own music. What possibilities to do you hear in this?
