During the US Open, James Murphy, former frontman of electronic dance-punk band LCD Soundsystem, teamed up with IBM for a special project: taking data from the tennis tournament and transforming it into electronic tunes. The music was interesting, but it was ambient, without a consistent melody. Now that problem’s been remedied. Murphy remixed sounds from two matches into dark, funky jams. You can listen to them here.
