Or 'Daft Punk Are Playing Tennis at My House'? Either way, James Murphy has done it again. Not content with soundtracking the NY Subway system, he’s now building music from US Open tennis matches. All in all it’s simply a showcase (Read: advertisement) for US Open sponsors IBM, but in amongst it are some simplistic, yet interesting, ambient soundscapes. They tend towards the delicate, and are generally pretty sparse, but if you like the (digitally recreated) sound of fractured 60s synths then this might well be worth ten minutes of your time. Here's Andy Murray's first round match for a taster.
In time, Murphy will remix his favourite sounds into 14 tracks which the cynic’s in us are sure will be on release in time for Record Store Day next year. Find out more about that, here.
