While a seismograph measures and records force and duration of earthquakes, Norient, with the exhibition, the book and the DISKURS program aims to measure visions of a new world. For this approach it is crucial to work in close collaboration with artists, journalists and academics from different places and cultures of knowledge.
 
More specifically, the panel program explores strategies, how musicians and video artists today create their home countries anew: for example through focusing on international niche genres, parodies on exotica, post-digital visions or random sampling of data streams. Cheap software and production costs, the possibilities to connect through social media and spread music and videos online, or digital access to an overwhelming amount of data and knowledge are some of the engines behind this cultural revolution. We discuss with our international guests (musicians, academics, journalists, blogger): How close is the geography of multi-layered modernities? What are new forms of musical protest? How do these new positions will change our perception of music and the world?
