The Third Man (2010) explores the darker side of song; music as a parasite infecting humanity at some point in prehistory and spreading like ripples from body to body. Some researchers believe that language developed from primeval men singing to each other. Song then becomes the first technology; the first time an alien structure infiltrates and takes control of the human body. Song is also the first technology that each individual encounters in life; it works its way into the womb before any other conditioning of the child can take place.
The project exists both as a lecture performance and as an independent video work.
