Prog. notes: When I was a child, I was often left along at home when both my parents went to work. At that time, I tended to be scared by the noises made by the doors when they were moved by the wind because they made me think that a thief or a ghost was breaking in. This piece is intended to portray my childhood experiences of being frightened by the sounds and my own imagination. In this piece, sound samples from opening and closing the door are used as the main materials for further timbral transformation with signal processing techniques such as granular synthesis, convolution, and ring modulation.
