Never-theless, he managed to get a career as a composer, poet, performing musician and he invented sev-eral very special percussion instruments. He stayed every day in New York on 5th Street with his dog. Often in a Viking costume. He was absorbed by Nordic mythology, but also of classical music and of the jazz. He had a close relationships - and collaborated with - different people like David Bowie, Philip Glass, Charlie Parker and others.
