Arovane is the recording name of German electronic music artist Uwe Zahn. Zahn was born in Germany in 1965. He first began experimenting with rudimentary audio equipment and keyboards when he was 15. Arovane’s sound is unique and can be characterized as ethereal, intellectually melodic, organic, warm and ambient yet technically involved with structured, often heavy, Breakbeat and Hip hop influenced beats. It is richly layered with synths and textured distortions and focuses more on generating a melancholy nostalgic feeling then 4-on-the-floor dance steps. The tempo’s are in the midrange and has been labeled as IDM by many. Arovane can possibly be compared to a blend bewtween the robotic glitch sound of early Autechre and the expansive open synth-laden fields of Boards of Canada. Zahn and his music are often referred to as being melodically advanced.
