VIDEO: Donovan Hikaru's – "Slums of Wall Street"
Crisis Revelation Solution (CRS 4.0) is the fifth part of a series of concept releases based on David Fincher film, The Game, and the fourth release from Donovan Hikaru's originally composed CRS works.
An acronym for "Consumer Recreation Services", CRS is the mysterious corporation at the heart of the 1997 film.
This album in particular draws partly from an obscure early version of the screenplay by John Brancato and Michael Ferris found on the web. The majority of the album was created around 2015 and was shelved, lost from a hard drive crash, then later recovered and finally finished.
The series, which continues on, has featured a real life scavenger hunt in San Francisco's Financial District for a secret cassette, virtual puzzles, a split release with mallsoft icon 猫 シ Corp., and now original artworks from KoShrimp and a cast of collaborators including Michael McGregor, Adam Wilkey and Crackmaan.
