Eclectic Method

Eclectic Method is the name of an audio-visual remix act, originally formed in London in 2001 by Geoff Gamlen, Ian Edgar, Johnny Wilson.

They quickly developed Eclectic Method’s audio-visual style into a live performance featuring video turntables (Pioneer DVJ-1000) – mixing the visuals and audio in real time. As a live act, they have traveled around the world playing hundreds of gigs in Asia, North America, South America, Europe and the Middle East.

After their early period, creating what were considered ‘bootleg’ and ‘unofficial’ video remixes, Eclectic Method were called upon by artists like Fatboy Slim & U2 and by film, video, and television companies such as New Line Cinema and Palm Pictures to create custom audio-visual remixes.

Greg Deocampo began working with the trio in 2006 on advanced research and development initiatives involving live, online, and blimp-based video. Eclectic Method appears as one of the featured artists on ‘Copyright Criminals,’ a 2009 documentary film directed and produced by Benjamin Franzen and Kembrew McLeod examining the creative and the commercial value of sampling.
