Ex-LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy is pretty keen on using technology to turn interactions into music. At the beginning of the year he proposed a modification of New York subway station turnstyles. The technology would play complementary tones when people went through the turnstyles. It doesn’t look like his idea is being implemented, but he’s been involved with a similarly awesome venture.
James Murphy and IBM turned data from the US Open into music. The music is a real time representation of the matches.
Murphy has also remixed some of the songs that were made, and will be releasing them as an album.
Here are a couple of the songs from the collection, which was just uploaded to IBM’s SoundCloud. The uncut music, remixes, and more information are available at the project’s website.
