Ror-Shak is an electronic act, fronted by artist's DB & Shaun Morris AKA Stakka. The forthcoming album "Deep" features guest vocals by Julee Cruise, Lisa Shaw, Chantal Claret, Wendy Starland and Mark Holmes. Ror-Shak started out as a bit of an experiment. Stakka asked DB if he would like to collaborate on a track for a single. After a little resistance because of an extreme aversion to studio's due to frustrating experiences in the past, he agreed to give it a go.
Their first effort was a dancefloor tune called 'Groupies', signed & released by Breakbeat Science, its now long out of print & quite sought after. The real success for DB was not the fact that the single sold out, but that the studio process was relatively painless & the results were wicked.
He was so impressed with Stakka's studio ability, they quickly started making a follow up, but something was happening this time, the sound they kept being drawn to was not dancefloor drum & bass. It was a much more musical form of the genre. Going with their gut feeling, they decided to make something more for listening & not just dancing.
Both had been really inspired by Zero 7 & felt that should be the basic pallet to work from, but they also took inspiration & sounds from a whole host of diverse artists that had rocked the duo's mind's, body's & soul's over the years.
Things took on even more of a 'real' record feel, when they nervously approached signer Julee Cruise, who they had sampled, asking her to listen & hopefully give her permission for the use. Not only did she give her enthusiastic blessing, but offered to write some original material and to sing them on the album.
Ror-Shak's album 'Deep' is an exercise in taking an extreme musical form and turing it into something that regular music lovers find enjoyable and exciting, without even knowing its rooted in d&b, while not making it boring for the true heads.
With live musicians and singers guesting, such as Chantal Claret and Pedro Yanowitz from Moriningwood, Lisa Shaw and Mark Holmes, the album did end up taking over 12 months to make. Mostly due to Stakka's obsessive attention to detail, his efforts are really evident when listened to on headphones.
The name Ror-Shak is a play on the swiss psychiatrist Dr Rorschach, who devolved the ink blot test in which everybody sees something different. In Ror-Shak's case, everyone hears something unique, it's also a tip of the hat to Alan Moore for His Watchman character by the same name.
The Rorschach test also known as the Rorschach inkblot test, the Rorschach technique, or simply the inkblot test) is a psychological test in which subjects' perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both.
Some psychologists use this test to examine a person's personality characteristics and emotional functioning. It has been employed to detect underlying thought disorder, especially in cases where patients are reluctant to describe their thinking processes openly. The test is named after its creator, Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach.
In the 1960s, the Rorschach was the most widely used projective test. In a national survey in the U.S., the Rorschach was ranked eighth among psychological tests used in outpatient mental health facilities.
It is the second most widely used test by members of the Society for Personality Assessment, and it is requested by psychiatrists in 25% of forensic assessment cases, usually in a battery of tests that often include the MMPI-2 and the MCMI-III.
In surveys, the use of Rorschach ranges from a low of 20% by correctional psychologists to a high of 80% by clinical psychologists engaged in assessment services, and 80% of psychology graduate programs surveyed teach it.
Although the Exner Scoring System (developed since the 1960s) claims to have addressed and often refuted many criticisms of the original testing system with an extensive body of research, some researchers continue to raise questions.
The areas of dispute include the objectivity of testers, inter-rater reliability, the verifiability and general validity of the test, bias of the test's pathology scales towards greater numbers of responses, the limited number of psychological conditions which it accurately diagnoses, the inability to replicate the test's norms, its use in court-ordered evaluations, and the proliferation of the ten inkblot images, potentially invalidating the test for those who have been exposed to them.
