James Murphy streams ‘Remixes Made With Tennis Data’ album

LCD Soundsystem frontman used data from the US Open tennis tournament to create music

James Murphy has shared a collection of remixes of music he made using data from this year’s US Open tennis tournament.

The former LCD Soundsystem frontman recently collaborated with IBM for the ‘US Open Sessions’ project, with an algorithm turning scores and data from the tennis matches to compose over 400 hours of music.

The full compositions were posted on the US Open Sessions website, but Murphy has now used the material for these remixes.

Listen below.

Meanwhile, Murphy recently denied reports that he’s set to work on the new album by New Order.

Bernard Sumner and Tom Chapman from the Manchester band had suggested in a interview that the group could be set to work with the producer in the near future. However, DFA Records took to Twitter to quash the rumours, writing: “Dear click-baiting websites who all have our email – there is zero truth to the DFA/New Order news. How come no one bothers to check facts?”
