Kultapalmut combine visual and aural dimensions into a magical, modern day magic lamp -performance – like an experimental Laterna Magica. Moving picture and live sound are present simultaneously. The duo creates sorts of real-time movies, of which every one turns out to be unique. There’s also experimentality and coincidence involved: a single performance can never be reiterated as it was.
