This work is inspired by the interaction of two distinct sound worlds: plucked metal strings and wind instruments. The multitrack studio allows for the build-up of these sound worlds to create unique sonic effects without having to resort to electronic effects or processing. The composition is divided into three sections of three, five and seven minutes, each of which explore the relationship between the sound worlds as they are constantly changing. This movement in sound is evoked by the title which suggests the transformations from one state to another as in a doorway which acts as a passageway between areas of sound. In most cases the crouching is only momentary as we spring from one area to another. The composition was commissioned by the Groupe de musique expérimentale de Bourges (GMEB), Bourges, France. Research for the composition was completed in the GMEB studios and at the EMS in Stockholm, Sweden. Production of the composition occurred primarily at the composer's private studio and at the Sonic Research Studio, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, Canada. PD
