Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber, two aerial performers from a dance group called Bandaloop, perform a breathtaking dance routine on the side of Oakland’s City Hall during the Art + Soul Festival. I didn’t know vertical dancing was a thing. Would be really cool to shoot an entire movie like this, with different backdrops on different buildings. Watch the video below.

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

jamesmurphy-usopn-tennis1
