Xma$$ale celebrates good ol' American capitalism with a trip to the mall on Black Friday. The idea for this piece comes from a suggestion by composer Alex Shapiro. She suggested I make an update of the passage in Charles Ives' "Three Places in New England" that layers different marching tunes on top of each other to simulate standing on a street corner as a parade passes. My version replaces the marching bands with canned Christmas music that you might hear at the mall during holiday shopping season.

I sent this along to Boris for this week's collaboration, and he took to the malls.

Ha! If anyone was longing for that holiday-time-at-the-mall feeling (NOT!), well, this'll cure 'em!

At least this way you can get that holiday-at-the-mall feeling without actually needing to go to the mall.

Thanks for the suggestion Alex.
