Arie was born in Voorburg near The Hague in The Netherlands, and subsequently lived in Utrecht. His first composition was an arrangement of a song of the Antwerp Songbook, when he was in the university choir of Enschede. After moving to Utrecht, he joined the Domcantorij where he learned much of the vast repertoire of a cappella choir music ranging from Renaissance to 20st Century. From then on, his interest in composing grew. Some of his works have been performed by the Domcatorij.
In the latter years of his life, Arie was working as a graphic designer with a main interest in typography and incorporated this into musical typesetting.
