Description -- In part 5 of our video series, 'An evening with Johan de Meij', the composer explains the process he goes through when creating a new work. 'You have to have a plan,' de Meij says. 'It doesn't start with inspiration ... It always starts with frustration.' Hear about the self-doubts and problems even one of the world's greatest composers of wind band music faces. This video was recorded on 31 March 2010 at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University, and was organised by the Australian Band and Orchestra Directors' Association Queensland (ABODA QLD).
