Source: The 5th Wave, Rick Yancey, Page 90

Context: The woods echoed with the staccato burst of automatic weapons and people screaming, but it wasn’t computing, like Crisco’s head snapped back and the way he flopped into the gray dust like every bone in his body had suddenly turned into Jell-O, the way his killer had swung around in a perfect executed pirouette and the barrel of the gun flashing in the sunlight.

In Their Words: Performed with each note sharply detached or separated from the others.

In My Words: Music in harmony together.
