Diabelli Project 114 - 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 is another take on this solo marimba piece that seems to be just bubbling under my consciousness. And there seems to be a connection. The flowing lines with the integrated slow-moving melody seem similar to that in No. 105.

But there's a distinct difference. In this sketch I tried to expand the melody by adding a note to the pattern with each iteration, just to see what would happen. Well, here's what happened.

What happens next? I'm not sure. But 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.
