Binärpilot (Alexander Støver), a pro-piracy electronic musician from Norway, has released his latest album, Nordland, as both a free download and as a physical CD.
“I make music because I love to, I need to,” says Støver. “I don’t want to make a lot of money, I don’t want to be famous, I just want to keep making music that I like and share it with everyone. Hoping one day to create something unique.”
Funded entirely by fans, Binärpilot’s new album is fighting the “war against poppollution”.
“Piracy is not hurting the artists,” says Støver, “it’s hurting the industry behind the artists.”
“And that is, in my opinion, the beauty of it,” he adds. “Contrary to what they want you to believe, piracy is (if anything) saving music, because it’s bringing a corrupt and exploitative machine down to its knees.”
