In Holland we call it 'de kwintencirkel', the circle of fifths, the major keys starting on C: C-G-D-A-E-B-F# or Gb-Db-Ab-Eb-Bb-F and back to C, voilà, a virtual circle.
The minor keys, starting on a: a-e-b-f#-c#-g#-d# or eb-bb-f-c-g-d and back to a. My circles don't start on C and a, that's no problem, the system stays the same, just return to the starting-point by creating perfect fifths. Till now I've composed six circles with the same system, a kind of format.
