The title plays with the ambiguity of the word: referring to both the act of fleeing and of flying and the synonym for a set of stairs. The composition was entirely derived from only two recordings: the interior of a passenger aircraft landing in Bahrain and the composer running down an office building stairwell. Commissioned by the CBC as a reflection upon Sept. 11th, 2001. Completed August 2002.
