Composing With Constraints: Exercises 2-4

Three more prompts from Jorge Variego's book Composing with Constraints:

Exercise 2) Compose a melody for oboe that starts and ends on different pitches and uses a prescribed scale and rhythmic component provided on page 8. 


Exercise 3) Compose a melody for Bb clarinet that uses the same prescribed collection of pitches as exercise 2. For the second half of the exercise, use only a subset of four pitches of the original pitch collection. *I took some liberties with this one. 


Exercise 4) Using only eighth notes and eighth note rests and the prescribed scale on page 9 (that you can slightly alter after the first five measures), compose a melody for bassoon in 5/4.
