In MythirdEar, musician Tamara Kohler explores ‘seemingly lesser known sounds’.
Tamara invites performers to talk about their musical specialties and together, they listen to examples ranging from the obscure and experimental to the popular and instantly recognisable. Each 20–30 minute episode covers a different instrument or musical sound, and charts its usage throughout music history.
Tamara is an accomplished performer herself, and manages to cover both a breadth and depth of musical knowledge with remarkable ease. Episode titles like ‘Uilleann Pipes’ might be unfamiliar, but by the end of each one Tamara and her guests will have unblocked your ‘third ear’ enough for you to realise, actually, you’ve heard it all before.
