Musical Style
"Vehar's music a masterly integration of many supposedly mutually exclusive elements--comfortably jazzoid passages cleverly intertwined with harsh moments, and moments wherein patches of rather severe dissonance uncannily melt into soaring lyricism with an undeniably American accent."
-Fanfare magazine
