Project 11 part 2

The second task in this project was to compose two short melodies and write companion melodies for them.  For the first I wrote a pentatonic melody for marimba and then added a  flute line.  The pentatonic scale gives the piece an oriental feel which these instruments feel well suited to.

I quite like how this particular exercise turned out – I think the pentatonic scale helped me to write it in a fairly free flowing way which to me makes it stand out from some of my other projects.

For the second I wrote a gypsy style inspired piece for clarinet and added a bass clarinet line:
