Pentatonic sketch
Due on Moodle by end of Wednesday 13th (B group) / end of 14th Thursday (D Group)

Write a sketch of around 12-15 bars using only notes of ONE pentatonic scale (C would be CDEGA). IT can be generally atmospheric or have a clear melody and accompaniment. You can write for any combination but then will be stuck with that ensemble for all your sketches.
