today we put up my last album, 'wait for me' on mobygratis

From Moby's blog:

today we put up my last album, 'wait for me' on mobygratis:

as some of you might know, i have a website called mobygratis:

it provides free film music for indie and student and non-profit filmmakers.

today we put up my last album, 'wait for me' (which features prominently in academy award nominated 'waste land', as well as paul haggis' last movie 'the next 3 days') on mobygratis.

so if you're an independent or student or non-profit filmmaker (or all 3, as the case often is) who needs free music you can now use the songs from 'wait for me', as well as the other 100 or so pieces of music up on the site.

free music for indie, student, and non-profit films.
