Free Music for Filmmakers

Moby_2_4 Low-budget indie filmmakers and students, listen up: Moby (remember him?) is offering his music for free to use in film and video.  Visit mobygratis.com "to find decent, royalty-free music for your non-commercial film, particularly when that music needs to be mediocre, easily-accessible electronic music." (I Watch Stuff)

Moby writes on the website:


i'll keep this brief. 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... 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,


"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," Moby, who minored in film at SUNY Purchase, told Variety. "Whenever I tell anyone about this, people keep expecting a catch. There isn't one... I structured it so that it's impossible for me to make any money from it."

I don't know how you feel about Moby and his music, but I do know how I feel about free stuff. (Hint: it's awesome)
