In memory of Art Jarvinen (1956-2010)

Art Jarvinen was a close friend and musical collaborator when we were both students at Cal Arts. In addition to a lot of hanging out, we had an improvisational trio (The Caucasians) and did some recording and performing as “The Folk Hunters” (an experimental folk music duo).

Over the years, Art and I drifted solidly out of contact. When I learned of his death in 2010 it was a sudden shock that reverberated with great sadness and regret. This piece is dedicated with fondness to Art, a creative force I was fortunate to work, laugh, eat, drink coffee and create with.

This composition started before I learned of Art’s passing, inspired by encountering Igbo Ogene music of Nigeria. After hearing the news, the piece developed over several months as a reflection on Art, our work together, death and transition, repetition and variation. I am grateful for a friend, who also knew Art at Cal Arts, for adding the bass parts and providing me feedback on the piece.
