LA-based FCP & Avid editor and bungee jumper Shane Ross posted this tidbit on his Little Frog in High Def blog: moby has released nearly 80 tracks for free use in non-profit / noncommercial films and videos, and he’ll license them for use in for-profit works, too.
If you’re a moby fan (as I am), it’s worth signing up just to listen. The clips average about two minutes running time, and range from quiet and contemplative piano pieces to lounge to spaghetti-western themes with a mobyesque twist to driving electronica (and probably more; I’ve been sitting here the last fifteen minutes listening, and I’ve only auditioned ten tracks or so). Some tracks have variants, like differing length cuts, or versions without drums. It’s all genuine moby; and if moby’s good enough for the likes of Miami Vice, Memento, Minority Report, three of the Bourne films (so far), Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and The Sopranoes, he’s good enough for you (but then, I may be biased, grin)!
Thanks for the music, moby! Thanks for the heads-up, Shane!
