The vast, poetic, hallucinatory Vedas – the writings of early Hindu civilisation – were, and are, kept alive by human memories and repetition, where no earthly traces survive of the culture they sprang from. On what weft are woven the waters is a piece about memory, ritual, sacrifice, and the constant remaking of the oldest things through the magical symbolism of sound.
