"I wrote this little excerpt bit back in high school for a project and when I had an ensemble play it, instead of playing it how I wanted and wrote, the snare drummer was quite insistent on playing it a certain way, with over the top energy. Initially, I thought that it was a bit much, however, I did grow to come to like the over the top energy and could not see this section be played without it. This would not have turned out the way if I kept it how I originally intended."
