Artists have long used music to raise awareness of and advocate social and political causes. BitTorrent’s technology and expansive community provide a new platform for artists looking to share their music with the world.
This is JaGoFF’s second release via BitTorrent. The first, “The Chicago Promoters’ Ordinance Kills Independent Music”, is a compelling and humorous documentary chronicling a grassroots campaign to preserve the rights for independent artists to promote live shows in Chicago. The documentary, available for download here, raises awareness around laws that effect local arts and music communities.
