Inspired by the timeless music of Partch's homemade instruments, he was soon studying the composer's book Genesis of a Music. Before long, Arnautoff was in correspondence with Partch and when the composer moved the instruments to Peteluma, California, the young man made trips to study with Partch. When Partch moved on to Southern California, they kept up their letter writing.

A few years after Partch's death, Arnautoff built a 66-string variation on the Harmonic Cannon zither. He built his version in 1976, but redesigned it again in 1998. It is on the redesigned instrument that his first recording was performed.
