The album closes with a distinctively otherworldly, mystical sounding improvisation, which I created to best summarise the entire ancient Greek magic theme of the entire album.

Besides the exotic musical mode of this piece (my own variation of a Middle Eastern scale), I attempt to evoke this mystical feeling, by the use of spooky-sounding, unusual playing techniques, which include using the edge of my carved goats horn plectrum as a slide on the strings to create portamento, in addition to passages which feature hitting the strings with the plectrum whilst stopping specific strings with my left hand in order to create sinister, percussive harmonies.
