In August 2011 Belew, Levin and Mastelotto organised the 3 of a Perfect Pair Camp, a music seminar that included daily group performances of King Crimson repertoire. This foreshadowed the Two of a Perfect Trio; tour of the US and Canada in September – October 2011 which comprised of sets by Stick Men, The Adrian Belew Power Trio, and a final section featuring all six musicians. In the summer of 2012 this sextet supported Dream Theater on a US tour under the name The Crimson ProjeKCt and have retained this moniker ever since.
“Tony and myself discussed the not-easily- doable name of Stick Men The Adrian Belew Power Trio That Do A Set Of King Crimson Music. Tony’s suggestion was ProjeKct Krimson. Mine was The Crimson ProjeKCt.” (from Robert Fripp’s
diary, Saturday, 14th April 2012)
