On September 30th, Moby released Innocents: his 11th studio album, and maybe, his most personal. A lo-fi, melodic meditation on vulnerability, it's the record that he wanted to make. What you make of it is up to you.
Moby's camp is sharing the entire stem catalog from innocents as a BitTorrent Bundle. Download the Bundle, and unlock the album experience: four new tracks, three music videos, and album art. Listen. Then reshape the record. Every single new electronic music stem used to build innocents is built in to the Bundle. Mix the tracks. Make them your own. And kick in to the storytelling project the've started on SoundCloud.
After all, an album is only a starting point. You decide how the world will hear it.
One of the things that i love about the digital present(as opposed to the digital future) is the way in which people can bypass the old and arbitrary gate-keepers. i'm personally a huge fan of the back and forth dialectic that's possible with things like bittorrent, when information is shared and modified and the lines between, creator and audience are ultimately blurred" -Moby
