Project 11 : Inventing free counterpoint

The first task for this project was to create a second melody for two given short melodies, for instruments of my choice. Secondly, I was asked to create another two short pieces, with a companion melody each. I had a free choice of instruments but was encouraged to work with a combination of woodwind and tuned percussion.

The following first two pieces are the ones, where I was provided with one line of the melody beforehand.

For this melody I added the line of the bass clarinet.

For this piece, the line of the Glockenspiel (Orchestral Bells) was already given.
