Eclectic Method
Eclectic Method
Eclectic Method have long been at the forefront of visual-audio music production and performance. Since their beginnings in London in 2001, EM have toured the world with their live kinetic video DJ show, playing from Cannes to Bonnaroo, Sundance to Oxegen, Summit Series to Camp Bisco, Terminal 5 to the Warfield, Avalon to Bowery Ballroom and countless more. They have been commissioned as remix producers by the likes of U2, Public Enemy, Phish, and Fatboy Slim and have collaborated on projects with Chuck D, Donald Glover, Reggie Watts, J-Live, and many more.

As the name suggests, every type, form, and style of media is on the chopping block for EM. Their output most infamously includes cutting and re-composing video and audio clips from music videos, film, TV, video games, into new forms of visual meta-pop mania. It's all too easy to call EM's work "mashup," yet with the real-time narrative, visceral culture smashing and twisted, witty sense of humor, the Method is more transmedia hurricane then DJ or producer.

Now based in Brooklyn and led by founding member Jonny Wilson, EM draws on a host of international design and production talent. With live audiovisual dance parties, award-winning viral videos, and original dance music releases, EM is the quintessential artist of the digital generation.
Kodomo
Kodomo
Kodomo is the electronic music project of Chris Child, based in New York City. Founded in 2000 as a moniker for remixes, Kodomo evolved into a platform for Child’s original compositions, leading to the release of Still Life on NYC’s label 5 Point Records.
To date, Kodomo has released debut album Still Life, 2011’s Frozen In Motion, three singles and one EP. He has performed in New York, Montreal, Barcelona, Paris, and Tokyo. His music is regularly featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, This American Life and All Things Considered. As Kodomo, Child has also done frequent remixes for artists including Freezepop, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, The Planets Won’t Let You Sleep Tonight and Symbion Project. His music has been released in the popular hit video games Rock Band, Phase, Amplitude and Frequency, produced by Harmonix.
Asked to characterize his work, Kodomo describes his interest in “images, objects, landscapes, weather and various scientific data, and how these mediums can be used as conceptual material for musical exploration.” “Much of my music is motivated by places, experiences, ideas and discoveries.”
