Spor Releases Caligo as a Pay What You Want Project

Listeners set the price of the new album.

UK-based producer Jon Gooch started Spor in 2006; a drum & bass project that helped shape electronic’s harder, more aggressive sound. After a long hiatus, Spor is resurrected. Caligo, Gooch’s new project under Spor, is as sinister and beautiful as you’d expect.

Caligo opens with “Your Murmuring Chasms”, an echoey, hazy introduction, before ‘Empire’ – a heavy, guitar-laden cut – sets the pace for the rest album with aggressive drums and gritty vocals. “After The Flood” slices through the darkness; a single, standout, ethereal voice. The album ends with “Hole Where Your House Was”; the menace lingers.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to work on the project”, explains Spor. “I wanted to make sure I was doing it for my own reasons. Not to fill a space or do it just to appease people. I wanted to make sure that by the time I came back to doing it I felt as enthusiastic as I did previously about the music.”

Today, Spor is releasing Caligo as a pay-what-you-want project exclusively on BitTorrent Bundle. Download or stream the album for free. Or, name your own price to unlock it; supporting the artist directly. Get the Caligo Bundle.

About BitTorrent Bundle

BitTorrent Bundle is a publishing project made with and for the world’s creative community. Our mission is to help artists connect directly with fans, inside the content they share.

Each BitTorrent Bundle allows artists to distribute content directly to the Internet. And each Bundle comes with a key. Fans can unlock artist content with an email address, or a direct payment to the artist. The idea is to make each song a storefront, and each file more valuable, every time it’s shared.

    • WTF

      its a scam to get you to pay for it and still seem like he tried to give it for free. I havent heard of anyone getting it for free successfully

  1. Bob

    So wont take card info, no error message just wont accept. David Cross’s movie is region locked. So the F@###ng inventors of bittorrent also don’t understand what drives people to pirate content. FAIL

  2. Usercloud

    I paid for the Bundle using Paypal and downloading the torrent with ease. I don’t know why you all encountered technical glitches.

  3. Nate @BitTorrent

    Hey everyone. First off, thanks for supporting Spor and BitTorrent Bundle. I have info on both the Credit Card form bug, and 93%ish stall-out on the free Bundle.

    The seeding issue was fixed yesterday. While the Bundle was found to be unable to complete, you should have received all the tracks that were offered for free. To our knowledge, the full Bundle was not affected. If you’d like to complete the free download, simply re-download the torrent file off the Bundle page, as you did before.

    On the credit card issue, this was found to occur when the currency setting was changed to anything but USD and GBP. Because Spor is only being sold via PayPal, the error you are getting has to do with that form not being hooked up to the Credit Card processor we use. The fix for this should be going out today, so users won’t encounter it anymore. Until then, simply leave the currency as is, and click “Buy the Premium Bundle”. You will be taken to a page with a PayPal button. Click that, even if you aren’t intending to pay via PayPal. On the PP page, there is an option for paying with a credit card.

    Thanks again for your patience and understanding as we refine this new platform for direct-to-artist sales. We’ll get the bugs worked out, just keep reporting anything you find. Take Care.
