Ah Belding - yesterday I visited Belding High School in Belding, Michigan. I was invited by the band director, Jonathan Schnicke (also an old friend), to make a presentation about my music to his Music Appreciation class. Afterwards I attended the marching band rehearsal. Jonathan often records these rehearsals.

Today's piece uses samples from yesterday's rehearsal recording. The recorder was high atop a tower, giving the band a distant sound. This inspired my treatment of the samples...
