In this track, I experiment with a unique style of percussive playing my tenor register lyre. This technique entails hitting the strings with a wooden baton; as opposed to plucking the strings with a plectrum). This ancient technique can clearly be seen in the famous bas reliefs of Assyrian harpists, in the ruins of the Palace at Nineveh, c.700 BCE
