The experimental activity with improvisation and composition began during the study time, even earlier. - He began to play actively in Intuitive Music Group in 1990. - And various experimental activity with sound and concert activity, teaching, musictherapeutic practice, playing as a pianist in different connections, among others playing duo with the jazzpianist Niels Chr. Balle, have been sources of inspiration for his works till now. He played with Carl Bergstrøm-Nielsen, Yu Wakao, Luca Miti and Mauro Orselli in Rome 2001. With Intuitive Music Group he was invited to Intuitive Arts Festival Fortalicje 2002 in Zamosc, Poland, where his piece "So much to hear" was highly acclaimed by the Polish audience. Since 2000, he has co-organised Denmark's Intuitive Music Conference, a yearly meeting for composers, improvisors and other intuitive artists.

Exactly the interest for the moment of creation among the musicians, the mutual interaction for the instant, is the principal origin of the compositions. - But also colors, experiences and events influence the works. Every event is potentially sound and music.
