Norient is presenting its knowledge in approved and available media: The network publishes books and LPs, curates CD compilations and produces documentary movies, that are discussing questions of time and trends at the global music business from several perspectives. Norient is always looking for connections between research, journalism and blog culture as well as between documentary movie and interactive music video and between academic depth and wide comprehensibility. All publications are available at the Norient store.
