400 Hours Of U.S. Open Tennis Music From James Murphy
Tennis is actually interesting. That’s the first, and last, time we’ll probably ever say that, and it’s all James Murphy’s (of LCD Soundsystem, duh) fault. He partnered with IBM (yeah, that IBM) and the U.S. Open to turn data from the tennis matches into musical tracks that will run for over sixteen days straight when they’re all done.
You read that right. Sixteen days. They estimate they’ll have around 400 hours of music by the time the project is complete. None of the tracks are party anthems, but if you’re a Murphy fan they’re definitely worth a listen. Hope you didn’t have anything productive to do for the rest of September.
