Moby Gives Unreleased Tracks to Indie Filmmakers

As in "for free."

Attention, indie filmmakers: Moby wants to help you keep your soundtrack costs down, and he’s willing to put his music where his mouth is.

Variety reports that the musician has set up a website — MobyGratis.com — for the purpose of offering unreleased tracks to indie, nonprofit, and student filmmakers. From the article:

“The biggest complaint I hear from my friends who are indie filmmakers is that they can’t get calls returned from record companies or that licensing quotes are outlandish,” said Moby, who minored in film at SUNY Purchase. “Whenever I tell anyone about this, people keep expecting a catch. There isn’t one.”

Moby has been alerting film schools and some independent film organizations about the availability of the tracks. He intends to add another 20 tracks to the site later this month.

“I structured it so that it’s impossible for me to make any money from it,” he said.

The music isn’t completely free — if the films are picked up for distribution, Moby asks for what Variety describes as “a small fee” — but the proceeds are donated to charity.

Speaking of Moby, movies, and music, the diminutive vegan recently wrapped work on the score for Richard Kelly‘s Southland Tales, debuting November 14.
