«Seismographic Sounds – Visions of a New World» is a multi-authored exhibition curated by the international, Switzerland-based network Norient - Network for Local and Global Sounds and Media Culture. 250 artists, musicians, academics and bloggers from Bolivia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Switzerland and 50 other countries introduce to distinct music, sounds, sound art and music videos. Produced in oftentimes small studios from Jakarta to La Paz, Cape Town to Helsinki, these works experiment with the possibilities of the Internet age and illuminate new spaces beyond the confines of commercialism, propaganda, and bigotry. They foresee a changing geography of multi-layered modernities, far beyond old ideas of North versus South, West versus East.
