And his music has been performed by ensembles such as Musica Vitae, Eric Ericsons chamber choir, Norrbotten NEO, Stockholms Blåsarsymfoniker (Stockholm Wind Ensemble) at venues such as Kulturhuset (Stockholm), Arbon arts center (New York), Skálholt chapel (Reykjavik), Ritarihuone (Helsinki) and more.
