In-Tune: joram

"Michael Hovan (joram) is a native of Tallahassee, Florida. He began producing electronic music in 1999. He draws inspiration from a host of unlikely sources including: Stereolab, Ted Leo and The Pharmacists, nobukazu takemura, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Plaid, The Descendants, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and Doudou N'Diaye Rose. Some of his strongest musical inspiration is taken from the music he has performed in the various world music ensembles at F.S.U. (Brazilian Samba, Chinese, Balinese Gamelan, and the African ensemble.) joram's music could be considered somewhat minimalist, and is created with the concept of musical texture in mind." -joram
