Description of Style

[...] Zehm uses a variety of techniques in his music. In particular, the minimalism of Steve Reich and Philip Glass, which he by no means copied, but enriched with his own touch. A lot emerges from improvisation, his involvement in rock and pop groups has also undoubtedly left its mark.
