CBN is a Danish composer, hornist, musicologist, educator and music therapist.

As a music therapist he was active in 1983-2014, further, he worked at Music Therapy faculty at Aalborg University, during which time he wrote academic papers (some seen in Bibliography section). His theoretical contributions include developments in parameter theory.

As a composer he works among others with open composition and graphic notation, developing his own approach to music games (the term he also used). As for our wiki, CBN agreed for some of the pieces and rearrangements to be put into the G4M library, and also contacted us with authors of some others.

He is a co-editor of Improvised Music - Open Scores journal and a driving force behind a series of intuitive music conferences in Europe (lately called… European Intuitive Music Conference).
