Project Pitchfork is an electronic musical group from Hamburg, Germany.
Project Pitchfork was formed by Peter Spilles and Dirk Scheuber. Having agreed to work together, they then picked the project's name by picking a word at random from the dictionary. The demo K.N.K.A. was recorded. Encouraged by the positive response, they take to the stage for the first time on February 15, 1990 in the scene club “Kir” in Hamburg and thoroughly convince the audience in the sold-out location. In May 1991, the revolutionary debut “Dhyani” is released. It is one of the first border walks between electronic music and Gothic and becomes an often quoted milestone in the history of Dark Electro.
From the very beginning, Project Pitchfork have been fond of improvising, always getting as much out of the given situation as was possible.
