The Third Guy is a duo based in Brussels, featuring electric guitarist Primož Sukič (Slovenia) and percussionist Rubén Orio (Spain). Although they have been playing together since 2014, their official debut dates back to January 2017, which was a result of an artistic residency at QO-2. Since then, The Third Guy has premiered more than seven new works, created by composers such as Saunders, Ciciliani, Profanter, Bonin, Lukijanova, and Maierhof.
The Third Guy’s musical and artistic research is based on composing works that explore and blur boundaries between improvisation, programmed computer algorithms, and composition. The duo also focuses on collaborating with other musicians and artists from other artistic fields.
