Moby & Mark Lanegan

Calling all independent filmmakers out there. Moby wants you to use his music free of charge. That wasn’t a typo.

The popular musician, and onetime Lower East Sider, jumpstarted his mobygratis project, a service that aims to hook up ” independent and non-profit filmmakers, film students, and anyone in need of free music for their independent, non-profit film, video, or short.” The reboot adds 150 album cuts from Moby’s discography to the library, plus some 50 unreleased tracks.

The terms of mobygratis are as follows:

Moby’s music is free for all non-commercial uses; however, if projects are ever converted to money-makers, proceeds from all synchronization fees will be donated to the Humane Society. All in all, not a bad deal.
