ProjeKct Two featured members Robert Fripp (guitar), Trey Gunn (Warr guitar, talker) and Adrian Belew (V-drums).

Belew is the lead vocalist and a guitarist in King Crimson, but plays V-drums, a type of electronic drum kit, in ProjeKct Two. This configuration was unplanned, but Belew had recently taken possession of the V-drums and Fripp was keen to experiment with their use.

The aim of these smaller Crimson projeKcts, or sub-groups, is to function as research & development units on behalf of, and for, the greater crim.
The projeKcts may become as much and as little as they may, recording and touring as stand-alone and independent units.
PROJEkCTTWO is chronologically the first of the smaller units into action, featuring Adrian Belew, Robert Fripp & Trey Gunn, which recorded this double album at Studio Belewbeloible in the Nashville Sector during November 19, 20 & 21st.
ProjeKcts 1, 2, 3, and 4, each a splinter group (a fraKctalisation, according to Fripp) of King Crimson, released various recordings, demonstrating the improvisational musical high wire act that the constituent musicians are able to produce.
After the ProjeKcts' task was completed, Bruford quit the band, and Levin let his active involvement in King Crimson rest until further notice; this left Belew, Fripp, Gunn, and Mastelotto as the next line-up.
Their first studio effort was The ConstruKction of Light (2000), accompanied by another album, Heaven and Earth, which was released under the name ProjeKct X. Heaven and Earth was edited together by Mastelotto from material recorded during the rehearsal and recording period of the studio album.
