alchemy by glenn mcdonald / @everynoise for Pop Con 2020, listening by the world

There is music of youth. It used to be that only kids knew what it was, but now that we have streaming, we all know what any of us knows.

This explorer was originally going to accompany a Pop Conference talk about the streaming patterns of youth. The pandemic moved the conference online, but the streaming patterns were already there, and the main goal of the talk was to give you another way of listening.

So here it is. Kids stream music, and I have engineered an Aqueduct to bring it to you. The Aqueduct of Youth is a playlist, generated weekly by math and listening patterns, of the songs that define, unite and distinguish kids around the world right now. And also an individual playlist for the kids from each country. And also the adults. And also two more for the classic songs from before 2000 (according to not-always-reliable release-date info) that kids and/or adults from each country still play, because I figured memory has to work differently depending on whether you were alive in the past or not.

You were young once. Kids are still young right now, all over the world. Joy is not intended to be secret.

We can all be young at any moment.
