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. All Fork recordings
use samplers to create live ambient beatscapes.
