Moby Will Score Your Next Student Film — For Free

Posted November 18

Have a heartstring-jerking, oh-so-artsy film in the works? Well, Moby has you covered in the moody music department. The musician has launched a site that allows aspiring filmmakers to download his music for free for use in their non-commercial works.

Upon visiting the stark, spare site, you’ll be greeted with a CAPS lock-shunning message from the musician:

i’ll keep this brief.

this portion of, ‘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.

if you want to use it in a commercial film or short then you can apply for an easy license, with any money that’s generated being given to the humane society.

i hope that you find what you’re looking for,

Simply register and you’re on your way to pages of free music from the artist — both preexisting albums and unreleased tracks.

It’s becoming easier and easier to find legal music on the web to integrate into projects — from AudioSocket to Rumblefish to initiatives like this.

Take a listen to Moby’s wares and let us know in the comments: What kinds of films are you mentally directing?
