I first drafted the opening section of this work as part of an original soundtrack for a short film entitled “Chip” that film director Nancy Kiang commissioned Arcomusical to create. The film is an intriguing retelling of Anton Chekov’s short story “The Father,” and includes gorgeous footage shot in South Africa. Given the historical roots of the berimbau to its ancestors in southern Africa, this geographical connection was very inspiring for me as I created the music for the film and I wanted the material to have its own life beyond the soundtrack itself. A wedding celebration of two former students from NIU, Krissy Bergmark and Mat Solace, offered the occasion to extend and complete the idea from the film to create a stand alone duo. This is the second such duo written in honor of former students as an offering for their future happiness and success. “Duo no. 6” bears a similar dedication. – Gregory Beyer
