stream James Murphy’s ‘Remixes Made With Tennis Data’ LP
As mentioned, James Murphy headed up a project for IBM that turned real-time data from the 2014 US Open into music. That music was mostly random bleeps and bloops but he then took that and shaped it into something still bleepy and bloopy but with more form:
James Murphy used the IBM Cloud and a custom-built algorithm to turn data points from more than 400 hours of tennis play (data like serve speed, number of aces, etc.) into music cues, generating real-time soundtracks for each match. Using those tracks as soundboards James remixed his favorites to create the 12-track album you see here.
