Spotify releases animated world listening map

Music streaming service Spotify has unveiled Serendipity, an animated world map displaying when two people listened to the same song at the same time. Created by interactive artist Kyle McDonald, Serendipity aims to highlight when two individuals happen to start listening to a particular song on Spotify within a tenth of a second of each other, in different locations, depicted by the use of data from one hour of one day. Serendipity was created as part of Spotify's Media Artist in Residence program, which is run on an informal basis.
