Wie eng oder wie weit der eigene Horizont gestaltet ist, das hängt vor allem von der persönlichen Neugierde ab. Wer nur eine Musikrichtung kennt oder kennen will, der verlernt das Staunen über das Unbekannte. Das Norient-Festival ist eine Stätte der Begegnung für experimentelle Geister, an denen der Hitparaden-Mainstream vorbeiplätschert.
