Norient to publish new book Seismographic Sounds: Visions Of A New World

Norient is set to publish a new book Seismographic Sounds: Visions Of A New World featuring contributions from The Wire's Louise Gray, Derek Walmsley, Adam Harper and Wayne Marshall

The Norient organisation is set to publish a new book, Seismographic Sounds: Visions Of A New World, this month. The volume collects essays and interviews by writers in more than 50 countries discussing music scenes and movements below the radar of mainstream media. Contributors include The Wire's Louise Gray, Derek Walmsley, Adam Harper and Wayne Marshall, and the topics covered range from Ukranian noise to Syrian metal.

The Norient organisation, based in Switzerland, is a publisher, promoter, festival organiser and online platform dedicated to seeking out new sounds across the world, and Seismographic Sounds focuses especially on the new spaces and possibilities opened up by the internet. The collection is edited by Theresa Beyer, Thomas Burkhalter and Hannes Liechti, and can be ordered direct from the Norient website. The book will be complemented by a Seismographic Sounds exhibition at the ZKM gallery in Karlsruhe, Germany in October, and at Berlin’s Transmediale festival next February.
