The Third Guy
The Third Guy duo is a group based between Brussels and Paris, with Ruben Orio (Spain) on drums, and Primož Sukič (Slovenia) on guitar, both musicians also performing on electronics.
The Third Guy’s sound moves between the acoustic, amplified, and electronic, and they understand themselves as a trio with an always open third entity. Every project they invite guest artists to collaborate with, which has allowed them to navigate between their different spheres of interests, from contemporary written music, over collaborations with composers, improvised music practices, video art, all the way to collaborations with experimental performance artists.
In 2019 The Third Guy released their first album entitled Shrimp & Karaoke through the London based label Migro Records which features their own compositions, as well as a work by German noise composer Michael Maierhof “Splitting 65.3” which they developed in collaboration with the composer.
The Third Guy collaborated with artists James Saunders, Marko Ciciliani, Caroline Profanter, Matej Bonin, David Helbich, Petronella van Halen, Elina Lukijanova, and Mihael Maierhof; and performed in venues and festivals such as SIRGA Festival (Flix, Catalunia), University of Southampton (UK), Champ d’action in Antwerp, SPOR Festival in Aarhus (DK), Ljubljana city museum (SI), Miry concert Hall Ghent, and iMAL Brussels.
