I shot this video last December at the Unsilent Night event in San Francisco. It's sort of post-modern Christmas caroling, a crowd parading through the streets with ambient melodies from boom boxes filling the city. It happens all over the place, and I'd highly highly recommend that you check it out if you are anywhere nearby. It'll be in New York City and Asheville on December 15th, Baltimore on December 21st, and San Francisco on December 22nd. Check out specifics and many more locations on the composer's MySpace.
You should (but don't have to) take a boombox so you can be part of the music. And tell your friends, because the more people, the better. It'll make your holidays happier, I promise!
