Week 34.  The relief this week, number four in this mini series (see week 31), has I feel, a particularly tranquil feeling. I don't think it needs the drama of  studio lighting to accentuate the relief, so I photographed it in natural light.

Hopefully the music is just as calm, it uses four notes: C,E,G and D, to emulate the four forms on the relief (again see week 31). I tried to make my bowed double bass sound like a harmonium, maybe played in a Scottish Chapel.

I broke my own rules and cheated slightly, by adding the sound module drone, rather than playing it on double bass, but I felt it added so much to this little piece that I have forgiven myself.
