A member of several independent bands that originated in Warsaw, Zemler has experimented with different music genres: improvisational music (Horny Trees, SzaZaZe, Kapacitron, Piętnastka), contemporary music (Arturas Bumsteinas, Zdzisław Piernik, Tadeusz Wielecki), world music (Ritmodelia, Calle Sol) and ambitious pop (The Saint Box, Incarnations, Frozen Bird, Babadag, Neurasja, Natu). Determined to pursue his own way, he created his own, original sound backed by unique sensitivity, ingenuity and exceptional technique. Lado ABC released an album (Moped) of one of his concerts.
