Music genre

According to his own statement, Fahrenhaidt wants to pursue a musical escape from the city and provide a balance to the hectic life in the modern cities. Accordingly, the music is very calm and meditative . They call their style "Nature Pop". Musically, it is modern New Age music, consisting of natural sounds and combined with electronic pop music and acoustic sounds. The guest musicians were mainly young, rather unknown female singers. The online magazine laut.de described their music as a "mix of soft pop world music with esoteric interludes, interspersed with classically trimmed piano interludes."
