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