You Tube is not just the slavish useless revival of the TEB's tracks right taken from the original albums, but it's most of all the place where TEB wonderful music can meet the Arts, becoming a very suggestive soundtrack of pictures, homemade videos, paintings, drawings... ideas.
Here is a list of videos where TEB music shows its brilliant vocation to become the perfect soundtrack!
"The Cat's Eyes" by Moebius-Jodorowsky ("Ghetto Raga").
"Totentanz" by Dino Battaglia ("Abelard & Heloise" pt. 6).
"A Midsummer's Night Dream" by W. Shakespeare. Drawings by Cristina Breccia, words by Norberto Buscaglia. Music by The Third Ear Band ("Abelard & Heloise" pt. 2 & 3).
Homemade video with TEB's "Eternity in D" as a soundtrack.
A monologue talked in Italian based on a poem titled "Ho perso la testa per Salomè" ("I've lost my head for Salomè") written by S. Giovanni Battista on 32 A.C. The music is "Earth" by the Third Ear Band.
Illustrations from the rare "Mutus Liber" edited on 1677 by such Altus. The TEB track used for this video is "The Cauldron" from "Music from Macbeth".
"Les Songes Drolatiques de Pantagruel" painted in 1973 by Salvator Dalì. Music from TEB's first album ("Dragon Lines").
"The Mantegna's Tarots" with TEB's "Groom's Dances".
"The Magic Calendar", lithographs by Manuel Orazi printed in 1896. The soundtrack is the wonderful "Druid One".
"Waldkammer", the art of Madeline Von Foerster. The music here is "Abelard & Heloise" part 2.
"The Garden of Earthly Delights" by 'psychedelic' doped Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch. With the music of the Third Ear Band as a perfect soundtrack (excerpts from "Macbeth").
"Lark Rise" played by the Thirds as a musical comment for "Alchimie des Philosophes" painted by Salvador Dalì.
The incredible Hopi Dolls painted in 1969 by American Homer H. Boelter with the beautiful TEB's "Stone Circle".
A tribute to Don Cherry, Michael Hurley and the Third Ear Band (some quotations of "Eternity in D"...) by the genial post-folk-warrior Sedayne with references to the great Snock (the title of this track is infact "Snock Mandala").
