The second Norient book Seismographic Sounds – Visions of a New World introduces the reader to a contemporary world of distinct music, sounds and music videos.

Produced in oftentimes small studios from Jakarta to La Paz, Cape Town to Helsinki, these works experiment with possibilities of the Internet age and illuminate new spaces beyond the confines of commercialism, propaganda, and bigotry, covering topics including: music and money, music and loneliness, music and war, exotica, gender, sampling-culture, and post-digital pop.

The South African launches to be held at King Kong in Jo’burg and at Sunnyside Studios in Cape Town, will include local and Swiss live acts and panel discussions.  Some of the artists that have been confirmed to perform include Umlilo, Stash Crew and Dope Saint Jude, with many more to be confirmed.
