Ekagrata is a Sanscrit word meaning "one-pointedness of mind." The opening meditative section is interrupted at midpoint by a "break-through" at which electronic sounds are introduced. Sounds are 'masked' by other sounds, momentarily disappearing only to re-emerge later. The piece is self-generating in that the players cue each other to move to new material.
" ...hypnotic, rhythmical, Messaien-influenced, ...the use of percussion accentuated the power of the organ." —SJ, The New York Post
" ...The seriousness of mood and ritualistic nature of the materials created a quite remarkable effect." —Heuwell Tircuit, San Francisco Chronicle
