On the bank of the river Styx, the spirit of the deceased would encounter Cerberus, the three-headed dog who guarded the Underworld. His job was to stop people from leaving and returning to the world of the living.

This piece features my Luthieros "Lyre of Apollo III" - an enormous 11-string lyre with soundboard of skin. The piece is in the unsettling microtonal ancient Greek Archytas Enharmonic Genus, with rhythm spontaneously created by beating my carved horn plectrum against the drum-like skin soundboard of my lyre.
