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.
