Fork's music is based on improvisation. The players act as 'sample'
(as opposed to disc) jockeys, merging and manipulating sounds in real
time. This process gives the music its spontaneity and edge, but also
means that nothing can be expected. Everything leans towards happy sonic
accidents, unexpected melanges, continual surprise, minimum predictability.
The sample is thus used as a live instrument, a library of sound from
which musical pieces are formed instantaneously.
The project focuses on uncertain emotional impact, uncalculated risks
and results: the research of immediacy versus programming. In this way,
Fork show that contemporary electronic music and live performance are
not as mutually exclusive as they sometimes appear to be. The process
of making music is as important as the result, but technique does not
impede the power of music upon human sensitivities. This is the concept,
which Fork aim to combine with visuals (films for the soundtracks waiting
to be created) for live performances
Fork recordings use samplers to create live ambient beatscapes. A selection
of these recordings- Autoscript
- have been edited for release on D.O.R.
