MIC Norway is now history but listento.no lives on.
Following the merger of the Music Information Centre Norway and Music Export Norway which resulted in a new organization; Music Norway, MIC Norway was formally closed down on Dec 31 2012.
As a result of this, Listento.no will not be updated with new editorial content. However, the site will remain on the web for the foreseeable future, providing users with access to such services as biographies, interviews, music industry directory, score catalogue, webcasts, Live At the Office videos etc. Some, but not all services offered by listento.no will be available on Music Norway’s site. Hopefully, listento.no will still be relevant for some users searching for specific info on Norwegian music.
The music score services, including sales and hiring of sheet music, is now handled by the National Library of Norway. For users searching for works by Norwegian contemporary composers we encourage you to contact Music Norway’s Hilde Holbæk-Hanssen or the National Library’s Torkild Hansen.
For questions regarding the Norwegian music scene, export-related enquiries, requests for statistical material etc. please contact Music Norway.
We hope that users will still find listento.no useful. Please report bugs, corrections or other listento.no related questions to the site’s last editor; Tomas Lauvland Pettersen.
