The ProjeKcts are a succession of spin-off projects associated with the band King Crimson. King Crimson is an English musical group founded by guitarist Robert Fripp and drummer Michael Giles in 1969. ...


History

From 1997 to 1999, King Crimson "fraKctalised" into four sub-groups. ProjeKct One began as a suggestion by drummer Bill Bruford to fellow King Crimson band member, guitarist Robert Fripp that they do some improvisational shows together. Fripp suggested adding Trey Gunn (Warr guitar) and Bruford, to maintain a balance, suggested adding Tony Levin (bass, Stick), both also of King Crimson. Fripp then developed the idea of "fraKctals", multiple different subsets of the band working together, as a way of developing new material for King Crimson, the band having been at something of a compositional impasse. 1997 (MCMXCVII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1999 (MCMXCIX) was a common year starting on Friday, and was designated the International Year of Older Persons by the United Nations. ... From 1997 to 1999, the band King Crimson fraKctalised into four sub-groups known as ProjeKcts, one of which was ProjeKct One. ... Bill Bruford on the cover of his album, Feels Good to Me William Scott Bruford (born May 17, 1949 in Sevenoaks, Kent, England), better known as Bill Bruford, is an influential British drummer known for his forceful, highly precise, polyrhythmic style. ... Robert Fripp (born May 16, 1946 in Wimborne Minster, Dorset, England) is a guitarist, record producer and a composer, perhaps best known for being the guitarist for, and only constant member of, King Crimson. ... Trey Gunn with Warr guitar Trey Gunn was a member of the band King Crimson from 1994 to 2003. ... For the jazz drummer, see Tony Levin (drummer) . Tony Levin (born June 6, 1946, Boston, Massachusetts) is an influential American bass player. ... The boundary of the Mandelbrot set is a famous example of a fractal. ...


In the event, while ProjeKct One was the first of the sub-groups planned, thus its name, ProjeKct Two actually convened and recorded first. ProjeKcts Three and Four then followed, all four groups consisting of a subset of the six King Crimson members. While Fripp stated he was happy for a ProjeKct to be formed without him, he and Trey Gunn were in all four groups. From 1997 to 1999, the band King Crimson fraKctalised into four sub-groups known as ProjeKcts, one of which was ProjeKct Two. ... From 1997 to 1999, the band King Crimson fraKctalised into four sub-groups known as ProjeKcts, one of which was ProjeKct Three or simply P3. ...

As well as various individual releases, a boxset The ProjeKcts was released in 1999 with four discs, one per ProjeKct. The ProjeKcts is a 1999 box set of four live albums recorded between 1997 and 1999 by four side-projects of the band King Crimson. ...


Bruford expressed his concerns that his role in King Crimson was no longer important, so Fripp then suggested a ProjeKct Zero consisting of the full King Crimson THRAK line-up but with the full freedom of the other ProjeKcts. This ProjeKct never reached fruition, and both Bruford and Levin then left King Crimson leaving the other four members to resume work on a new album, The ConstruKction of Light. ProjeKct X was not a group as such, but material recorded during the sessions for The ConstruKction of Light re-assembled by the band, particularly Pat Mastelotto and Trey Gunn. The resulting album, Heaven And Earth, was released in 2000 along side The ConstruKction of Light. Additionally, when the 2001-03 group performed improvised pieces during their live shows, they would use the name ProjeKct X to differentiate themselves from the regular King Crimson, thus freeing up their talents to stray beyond the usual repertoire. The ConstruKction of Light is an album by the band King Crimson, released in 2000. ... ProjeKct X (pronounced Project Ten) was a side-project of the British music band King Crimson. ...

No more ProjeKcts occurred for some years. However, in 2006, a new project involving Fripp on guitar and Adrian Belew on drums played live under the name ProjeKct Six. There has been no ProjeKct Five. In 2006, Fripp said that he had ideas for ProjeKct Five and that ProjeKct Five will be distinct from the current full band line-up (Fripp, Belew, Levin, Mastelotto). Adrian Belew in concert, November 2006. ... ProjeKct Six is a side-project of the music band King Crimson, part of the long-running ProjeKct series which serves as research and development avenue for the more mainstream King Crimson group. ...


Music

The ProjeKcts' music has generally been of an improvisational nature and all has been instrumental. Fripp has described their purpose as being "research and development" for King Crimson. The phrase research and development (also R and D or R&D) has a special commercial significance apart from its conventional coupling of scientific research and technological development. ...


Notable is that Adrian Belew, guitarist and vocalist in King Crimson, has played electronic drums in his two ProjeKct appearances.

KING CRIMSON ProjeKct Two - SPACE GROOVE reviews and MP3 (2017 words)
For those who have the affinity, for never forget how the projeKcts view is one select and even eccentric, this material is very good and audible to the limits of comprehension and savor.
ProjeKct Two-Space Groove is not a sole residual production, but a strong auto-managed improvisatorial effect, one to which the general scapes of King Crimson contemporaneity reward it.
ProjeKct Two's "Space Groove" is 90 minutes of improvs from three members of King Crimson.
Channel4.com - SlashMusic - ProjeKcts, The (195 words)
Projekct One, with Fripp, Trey Gunn, Tony Levin, and Bill Bruford, proves to be the most rambunctious of the four, providing dynamic interaction and stunning displays of energy on disc one.
Projekct Three is similar, this time with Pat Mastelotto on drums, but with a definite world music influence not heard on the other discs.
Lastly, Projekct Four, the same lineup as Projekct One but with Mastelotto, is the most mesmerising of the four, providing a magical listening experience for any who wish to make the incredible journey.
