Based entirely on DIY promotion EYE's music achieved very extensive radio play across Australia & internationally. This includes: the popular national radio station JJJ (Triple J) featuring 'A Nice Walk in the Park' on their daily playlist for several months (just prior to EYE's extended holiday from music, due to injury); and numerous big-city popular community radio stations playing several songs on high rotation during prime-time shows - tracks including 'Mandate!', 'Refugees: Scapegoats (Detention Without Trial)', 'Taliban', 'Are You a Terrorist? (The government thinks so!)' & the early 'Grave New World'.

Around a dozen EPs and albums have been recorded and released via mail-order networks, independent record stores and websites. Currently only 3 of the albums are available: on BandCamp via www.EYE.audio. EYE plan to remaster and re-release several albums and EPs during 2016.

As a music project EYE haven't been particularly interested in making videos. A 'zero-budget' video was made for 'Mandate!'. Two national TV stations broadcast it: SBS's "Alchemy" and ABC's "Rage". In recent times basic visual clips have been made for several other songs for the EYE channels on: Youtube and DailyMotion. As of late 2015 those channels have accumulated more than 165,000 views.
EYE members have also performed &/or released music under the temporary sibling-project names of 'E.L.F.', 'elf', 'AphAziA', 'DJ Citizen', 'aya', & 'QT'... This was done in order to target the audiences of slightly different genres of music. For example, some people who were averse to the darker, heavier music enjoyed the lighter electronica. And so for a while several of the projects diverged and became quite well known through national radio play and gigs. However, it was decided later on that: i) it was not possible to effectively manage so many projects; ii) (sub-)genres come and go out of favour; iii) diversity under one banner is more interesting. Hence, all that material has been re-assimilated; originally it was all EYE music.
EYE's humanoid components have roots in the cities of Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Perth & Newcastle (Australia) as well as the North American cities of Toronto (Canada), San Diego, Los Angeles, Newark, New York & Jersey City (USA); have also resided in Europe - London (England, UK), Berlin, Koln/Cologne (Germany) and St Petersburg (Russia).
