James Murphy US Open Remixes

James Murphy Shares His U.S. Open Remixes “Match 4” and “Match 104”

As we previously mentioned, DFA Records head honcho and LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy collaborated with IBM to create an algorithm which input raw data from the 2014 Tennis US Open to create music. When all was said and done, the algorithm yielded enough data for approximately seven hours of music.

Murphy used a portion of this unique music to create two remixes, titled “Match 4” and “Match 104.” While there is no direct mention of which matches the data was pulled from or who played in them, there are some hints in Murphy’s descriptions of the tracks for the tennis enthusiasts who just have to know.

The description to “Match 4” reads:

“When a young player beats a top-seeded player, like in this match from August 25th, it’s bound to make some noise. And in this case, that noise is glorious: a series of simple, almost sweet opening notes that slowly transform into unexpectedly intense, mature sounds. Beats bubble up from out of nowhere, swiftly take over and set the track in an uncompromising new direction. Hear how James portrays the swagger of the younger player and the relentless drama of the match in the deep, pulsing beats.”

The description of “Match 104” reads:

“When this match began, it could have been either player’s game. And like the match that inspired it, this track opens with beats that are balanced–intense but equal, just like the players–with no instrument clearly taking the lead. The music pulses steadily until the last half of the track, when the instruments start to break form as one player falls behind, and the other takes the lead. The track ends with a soft, high-pitched whistle that ushers the defeated player off the court.”
