Since they´re both great composers, challenging them is something I wouldn never do :) , but here are two attempts of my latest class which was based on three note theme!!!
When I first saw the lesson I asked my wife to give me three notes randomly. She said C#, E and F. So, these were the note available for both themes!!!
The first one is called Tintim Theme because I composed it after watching the movie:

The second one is based on Craig´s idea of composing something ala James Bond dark theme:

Comments will be much appreciated!!!

haha! This is cool! And it sounds cool! I can't comment on your use of EIS but non the less, the result is most satisfying!

Haha, I love the Tintim theme. Great harmonies beyond my comprehension.

Your Suite Crepúsculo is a nice composition too, I just found some parts of it a bit cliche. I'd like to hear more exploration of the harmonies via counterpoint. Aside from that, I found it to be very satisfyingly depressing. =)

Really nice work. I take no credit in offering something as small as a direction. You really are your own man and the trick is taking the small inspiration and running with it which you obviously do very well. I feel confident in saying Spud would be proud of you.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I'm glad that the composition called more attention than the libraries usage :) !!!

It really is not part 2 of Book Eleven but the way books are now cut up book Eleven is split though it never really was.

3 note themes in reality is at the end of book Eleven
Book Eleven A is analyzing Spud's scores and is considerably smaller than Book Eleven which is a very long book.

Clear as mud?
