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.
