The trio Building Instrument exist in a sort of fantasy-filled no man's land between electronica, organic pop and something more mystical and fantastic. On their second album, 'Kem Som Kan A Leve', their mode of expression is deeper and more dreamlike, the soundscape is broader and more substantial, and their music is still extremely addictive and strangely catchy.

The members of the trio Building Instrument are Mari Kvien Brunvoll (vocals, sampler, zither, percussion, kazoo), Øyvind Hegg-Lunde (drums, percussion) and Asmund Weltzien (synth, electronics). Drummer Øyvind Hegg-Lunde plays in two bands that have released records, Strings & Timpani and Electric Eye, and has toured with José Gonzalez and his band Junip. Keyboard player Asmund Weltzien makes a vital contribution to the new soundscape on this album with his expanded palette of sounds.

The album 'Kem Som Kan A Leve' was made in the course of a two-year period, and some of the material was composed for a concert inspired by the art of Kurt Schwitters, which was commissioned and performed at the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter at Høvikodden, outside of Oslo, in September 2015. The concert marked the opening of a new, permanent Kurt Schwitters exhibition at the art centre, and was arranged as part of the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival.

The album was recorded in the legendary "Studio", a hall in the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, the same week as the Schwitters concert was given its world premiere. The album was mixed by producer Jørgen Træen together with Anders Bjelland.
