Crimson disbanded in '84 (one of several sad breakups) but re-formed a decade later as a 'double trio' consisting of Fripp, Belew, touch guitarist Trey Gunn, bassist/stick player Tony Levin, and drummers Bill Bruford and Pat Mastelotto. Then in 1997, it was time for another chapter of Crimson. The plan: To 'fractalize' into four 'research and development' units (as Fripp says). The Projekcts were born. Ironically, the first one deployed was Projekct Two, an outfit consisting of Fripp, Gunn, and Belew, who instead of playing guitar, handled Roland V drums (hardly a surprise, considering he was a drummer before he become a guitarist). 'The whole idea really was that the Projeckts would lead us to some basic building blocks that we would then turn into songs and formal pieces of music,' says Belew.
