As NORIENT states –

Norient searches for contemporary music, sounds and noises from around the planet. We discuss current issues critically, from different perspectives, close to musicians and their networks. Through the Norient Online Magazine, the Norient Musikfilm Festival, performances, books, documentary films and radio programs we hope to orient and disorient readers, listeners and spectators. Find out about strong, fragile and challenging artistic positions in today’s fast moving globalized, digitized and urbanized world.
