Jascha Narveson was raised in a concert hall and put to sleep as a child with an old vinyl copy of the Bell Labratories mainframe computer singing "Bicycle Built for Two." Awash in the sounds of chamber music recitals in his parents’ house-concert series from an early age, he spent his high-school years playing in improvisatory un-music bands and listening to increasingly esoteric music. These influences mixed with intensive traditional training in North and South Indian rhythmic traditions, a summer residency with Bang On A Can, dabbling in Cuban Batá and Georgian choral music, and learning about acoustic, electro-acoustic, and experimental music in Wilfried Laurier, Wesleyan, and Princeton universities. His music is a vibrant testament to these influences, combining the Western composer’s love of novelty and through-composed structure with a devotion to rhythm and timbre inherited from everywhere else. His music has been played in many places by many people, some of them famous, others deserving of fame, all of them deserving of thanks.
