Mugetuft is an audio/visual collective, exploring the relationship between live sound and live visuals.The project’s main idea is that the visual and audible means of expression shall be independent and at the same time inter-dependent of each other in order to achieve a tight and organic integration of sound and image. In Mugetuft audio should accompany the visuals as much as visuals accompany the audio. An installation by Mugetuft was shown at Fossekleiva cultural center June - August 2017.
