The Chemical Brothers release new video for ‘Wide Open’

The Chemical Brothers

The Chemical Brothers have released their latest video for Wide Open ft Beck, which was directed by their long-term video collaborators dom&nic who previously worked on the duo’s Hey Boy Hey Girl and Setting Sun videos. The track is lifted from their #1 album ‘Born In The Echoes’, and centres on the evocative dance of a young woman whose body transgresses from flesh to another form throughout the course of the song. Watch it below via YouTube.

Dom&nic’s vision was to merge the mechanical and organic, having been inspired by procedural cellular structures; their VFX Team created a full CG model of the dancer, Sonoya Mizuno, comprising of 107 individual anatomic rigs, as well as bespoke tools to allow the seamless transformation which happens during the dance. Dom&nic have made an abundance of legendary videos including David Bowie & Trent Reznor’s I’m Afraid of Americans and Ava Adore by The Smashing Pumpkins.

The Chemical Brothers have also made a major live announcement for London, Summer 2016. Final chance to register for tickets here:
