The music captured by 2L features Norwegian composers and performers and an international repertoire reflected in the Nordic atmosphere. The surround sound recordings of Lindberg Lyd not only transform the entire listening experience, but also - more radically - these innovative recordings overturn some very basic concepts regarding how music is played and even composed.

2L emphasize surround sound with Pure Audio Blu-ray and HiRes file distribution, and have garnered no less than 28 American GRAMMY nominations since 2006. Twenty of these were in the categories of Best Engineered Album, Best Surround Sound Album and Producer of the Year.

2L record in spacious acoustic venues, from large concert halls to churches and cathedrals. These types of venues have proved the most successful in obtaining the most intimate recordings. 2L’s Morten Lindberg believes that outstanding recordings should be able to bodily move the listener, therefore choosing the right venue for the right repertoire and the placement of microphones and musicians in that venue are of fundamental importance.

In Morten Lindberg's words: "There is no method available today to reproduce the exact perception of attending a live performance. That leaves us with the art of illusion when it comes to recording music. As recording engineers and producers we need to do exactly the same as any good musician: interpret the music and the composer’s intentions and adapt to the media where we perform. Surround sound is a completely new conception of the musical experience. Recorded music is no longer a matter of a fixed two-dimensional setting, but rather a three-dimensional enveloping situation. Stereo can be described as a flat canvas, while surround sound is a sculpture that you can literally move around and relate to spatially; surrounded by music you can move about in the aural space and choose angles, vantage points and positions."
