Spor – Caligo to be released on BitTorrent (and more)

Jon Gooch took to Twitter and Facebook with some very exciting and heartfelt broadcasts late last night.

First he announced on Twitter that his forthcoming album Spor – Caligo – due on his own label Sotto Voce, March 9 – will initially drop on BitTorrent, complete with the freedom to pay as little or as much as you deem appropriate.

Later on he then took to Facebook with an extensive update that shed more light on his dark “counter culture misfit” alter ego; why he does what he does, his feelings about art, the fans who receive it and make part of their lives, and why BitTorrent – a place where Spor – Caligo can live “as a self-sufficient shared container that’s everywhere and nowhere at the same time, replicating and spreading” is the perfect home for the album.

A salute to the people who live it, and a call-out to those who fake it, the entire statement is an essential read. Most importantly, he says this of the album: “Now I’ve finally made a Spor album, in my own time, by my own choice. It was still a climb, but it sounds exactly how I always wanted.”

If that doesn’t have you hovering over BitTorrent excitedly like a kid on Christmas Eve, nothing will. If you’re in the UK, be sure to catch him on tour:
