From the composer:The 'Svara Mandala' is a rare kind of harp used in Indian classical music. It is usually played to the accompaniment of tablas. In this 6-movement piece, the 'Svara Mandala' is addressed as a deity, each invocation emphasizing a different sound producing medium (i.e. "Brass and Steel" and "Wood and Membranes").
