Empty Yard Experiment aka EYE is a Progressive/Experimental/Post-Rock band, formed in 2006 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
EYE’s music is very much of a Western progressive rock variety, even as the very soul of its intricacies is rooted in a restless and volatile Middle East. Although its influences range from bands such as Tool, King Crimson and Nine Inch Nails, to Porcupine Tree, Alice in Chains and Mogwai, this versatile group of musicians has worked hard to develop a sound that often strives to elude categorization and gives the music a distinctive place in the local scene. Indeed, the variety of their musical role models is as diverse as their cultural backgrounds, with members hailing from Serbia, Iran and India - providing this versatile group of musicians with genuine multinational appeal.
The visual elements are highly conceptual and are based on the band’s own reactions to the world - material and abstract. Both the song lyrics and live visuals, which are featured in every live performance, are intended to demonstrate the gap between an individual and his or her comfort zone in society. The performances themselves comprise a form of conceptual art, and the visuals are instrumental in the creation of an experience that each member of the audience is invited to relate to in their own unique way.
EYE was lauded by Timeout Dubai as the best band of their kind in the entire region. In 2013, they opened the show for Metallica at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island Du Arena.
EYE released a self-titled EP in 2011 and in 2014, album Kallisti.
