Radiohead Star Embraces Bittorrent

 

 

 

Thom Yorke is releasing a new ‘album’ called ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’ via Bittorrent which is being made available via a ‘pay gate’, which he said this week is ‘an experiment to see if the mechanics of the system are something that the general public can get its head around’.

 

“If it works well it could be an effective way of handing some control of internet commerce back to people who are creating the work,” said Yorke.

 

“Enabling those people who make either music, video or any other kind of digital content to sell it themselves. Bypassing the self elected gate-keepers,” he added.

 

“If it works anyone can do this exactly as we have done.”

 

“The torrent mechanism does not require any server uploading or hosting costs or ‘cloud’ malarkey.

 

It’s a self-contained embeddable shop front . . .” http://tinyurl.com/mywgn2q

 

Moby previously made his album Innocents available to remixers on bittorrent, providing all the stems for free and chatting to Mashable about the project was charitable about producers profiting from his parts.

 

“Even if I make the stems, if they made the effort to make the remix, they should be the ones to profit from it.” (Click here to download all Moby’s parts: http://tinyurl.com/ofglsms )
