Arcade Fire, avid fans of quirky costumes galore, have unveiled a delightfully scary treat in celebration of Halloween: a horror film! Directed by “Noreen Bauble,” one of the band’s many monikers, Festi is a truly bizarre 21-minute visual that takes a look back at their 2011 summer festival tour. The best part of the flick, however, might be its star-studded cast in James Murphy, Fleet Foxes, The National, Peter Gabriel, Slash, and Andrew Garfield, among others.
IBM and James Murphy turned tennis match data into music. This is a remix of one of James Murphy's favorite matches.
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.
