Thou Hast Made Me Endless is based on the Indian scale Raag Yaman – an evening raga synonymous with devotion and dedication. It suggests an unconditional offering, asking nothing in return.

Unusual techniques including gentle overtones (influenced by Stockhausen’s ‘Stimmung’), hissed ‘sss’ sounds and repeated consonants to create an artificial echo effect. The repeated opening phrase reflects the cyclical nature of the words and their inherent sense of timeless contemplation.
