CRO$$ is the debut collaboration between Asheville, NC musicians Mike Johnson and Corey Parlamento (aka Livingdog). Each song was structured by using a different combination of acoustic and electronic instruments, field recordings, and household objects. They created fictional story lines based on photographs to dictate the direction each song would travel and then utilized elements of ambient and avant-garde music to create a sonic landscape for each image and story. CRO$$ is a collection of soundscapes that range from meditative and playful to chaotic and explosive.
