CURRENT PROJECTS

Tellef Øgrim and Onno Govaert met on stage in Amsterdam's Q-Factory in May 2019 during the Dutch Fretless Guitar Festival for an impromptu, unrehearsed improvised set. Following the onset of the Coronavirus attach the following year chapter two of the collaboration took place in the form of six audio files, three from each musician, being sent from one computer to the other via the Internet. Tellef then played on Onno's recordings and vice versa. The result is the album Mining the Duo, witch is due to come out by August 2020.

Critical Reception

The Leif

First album, 2018

The Leif is an electric guitar duo from Oslo. A self-titled debut album containing ten melody driven tracks is out at Simlas produksjoner (CD, streaming, download and vinyl).  Check out the duo's website.

Mugetuft

Berger museum

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. Check out this side of my work at mugetuft.no
