James Murphy (formerly of LCD Soundsystem) has built an algorithm to musically interpret live data from the US Tennis Open
which will create around 400 hours of music
All previous games can be listened to and each has a different flavour - it can get a little glitchy but try Djokovic vs Querry
or Brengle vs Lisick
for starters. Or have a play with the algorithm
20 Years of Punishment
Agassi's incredible journey ended today
with his loss
at the U.S. Open. A class act throughout the years
The Old Man vs. The Comeback Kid.
On Wednesday evening at 7pm EST Andre Agassi
will face James Blake
in the US Open Quarterfinals. At 35, this will be Agassi's 20th appearance at the US Open. Although he's been persistently dodging
plans for retirement this may possibly be the last time Agassi graces Arthur Ashe
court. James Blake's story is different. At 25, he's spent the past year and a half recovering
from a neck fracture, the death of his father and an illness in which he temporarily lost feeling in his face and suffered from blurry vision. He will also be the first black man to reach the quarterfinals in the US open in 23 years. Will this match-up be a passing of the torch to a younger generation of US men's tennis players or will experience prevail over youth? Regardless, this may be one of the most anticipated matches at the US Open since Agassi faced Pete Sampras in the 2002 final
How life changed from the view of several photographers.
The first link, about the injured David Handschuh is the most powerful story. The experiences of fellow photographers Richard Drew
and Shannon Stapleton
are made evident just by the giant shift in their subject matter (seen sequentially via Yahoo News) from Sep. 10th to Sep. 11th. Drew was covering the US Open on one day, falling people the next. Shannon went quickly from Spring Fashion 2002 to ground zero.
