This is the third in my cycle of works for detuned violin inspired by the Googly-Eyed Glass Squid (Tuethowenia pellucida). This weird creature has the ability to inflate its transparent body and fill itself with ink, thus rendering itself invisible in the darkness of the abyss.

Stretched out of shape, like the animal itself, the strings of the violin should be tuned one tone higher than normal, such that the music sounds one-tone higher than notated.
