Eclectic Method

Eclectic Method and its reproductions

Here's something coming up later this week that definitely looks a little different -- and could be kind of awesome.

Video re-mixers Eclectic Method will performing (playing? mixing?) this Saturday at Red Square in Albany. Their work has appeared on the Colbert Report earlier this year after they re-mixed an interview between Stephen Colbert and Larry Lessig.

From a recent Wired feature about the group:

Eclectic Method's kinetic live shows splice music, film, TV and videogames into a body-rocking audiovisual concoction that gets clubbers hopping and synapses popping.
"We are constantly in the process of remixing media and researching new forms of narrative that multiscreen stimulus brings," said the trio's Jonny Wilson in an e-mail to Wired.com. "We also rock a sick party with clips you saw on TV just yesterday, mashed up with a million memories from the collective media history we all share."

After Barack Obama's victory speech on election day, the trio had some fun with his line about the new puppy for his daughters. They've also re-mixed 30 Rock and Tarantino clips.

The show starts at 9 pm Saturday. Tickets are $9. Disposable Rocket Band and DJ Mr. Chips are also on the slate.
