April 8, 1932 - February 25, 2010
Les Gorven, founder and creator of the original "MIDI Studio Consortium", left us on February 25, 2010 accompanied by a Choir of Angels. Les was one of the largest contributors to the MIDI Community, not just with his personal MIDI sequences, MP3, and WMA files, but he hosted many other great sequencers and provided a lot of very helpful information to his visitors.
Les was so very talented, kind, dedicated, and generous, that it became infectious among his peers and followers. We here at Midkar knew Les at least 12 years, and he always was anxious to share his music, and technical skills.
This site is a combined effort to reinstate his wonderful site, persona, and the charachter of the man.
"He spent so many hours composing and/or sequencing each MIDI or MP3, until it reached a point and a standard where he felt it was of a quality which he would share with others"
We all miss him dearly!
Mrs. Betty Gorven, and The Midkar Team
