When Kirkelig Kulturverksted (KKV) started in 1974, the idea was to break down the walls between the secular, contemporary culture and the church. The idea has been to show that the latter probably is the most important foundation of most of the art in the Western world. Through the years breaking down walls has become an extended issue for KKV. Whether it has been between conservative and liberal groups in Norway, between different musical styles under various hemispheres of the planet, or between different religions and political systems, KKV has always loved the idea of provoking the consciousness of rules and stiff thoughts about genres, religious systems and dogmas.





One of the most important walls KKV has tried to turn down is the one between the artist and the listener. In order to do that, the company has developed a philosophy of sound that tries to be as true as possible to the original sound of the voices and instruments. This fidelity to a natural acoustic sound is maybe the reason why many of our records have been appreciated by producers of loudspeakers and sound-equipment in many countries.
