Moby has a web site where filmmakers can download his music for use in non-profit projects. Cool!
this portion of moby.com, ‘film music’, is for independent and non-profit filmmakers, film students, and anyone in need of free music for their independent, non-profit film, video, or short. to use the site you log in(or on?) and are then given a password. you can then listen to the available music and download whatever you want to use in your film or video or short. the music is free as long as it’s being used in a non-commercial or non-profit film, video, or short.
Something to keep in mind when you’re tempted to slap a Sigur Ros song on your viral video. (via ken murphy)
The Moby Quotient determines the degree to which artists besmirch their reputations when they lend their music to hawk products or companies.
The equation factors in the artist, how “underground” they are, the social character of the company, and how wealthy the artist is. (via snarkmarket)
Time magazine asks Moby, Malcolm Gladwell, Tim O’Reilly, Clay Shirky, David Brooks, Mark Dery, and Esther Dyson about their views on the future: religion, culture, politics, etc. Gladwell: “If I had to name a single thing that has transformed our life, I would say the rise of JetBlue and Southwest Airlines. They have allowed us all to construct new geographical identities for ourselves.”
