James Murphy and IBM Turn Data from US Open Tennis Matches into Live Streaming Music

jamesmurphy-usopn-tennis1

I love this idea so much. Recently James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) teamed up with IBM to create nearly 400 hours of live streaming music by interpreting data from US Open tennis matches. I love that you can imagine all the action in the match by listening to the music.

Watch the video, which explains a bit of the process, and then check out the music in the embedded playlists below. I’ve included James Murphy’s remixes of the entire US Open in one playlist, and then all the generative music from matches in the other playlists.

    Makes sense – the flow of a tennis makes sense as something that could be translated into the flow of a song. Wasn’t he trying to do something like this for the NYC subway system – give each station its own theme?

      I quit working at shoprite and now I make $35h – $80h…how? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier. Heres what I do…

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
