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: thechemicalbrotherslondon2016.com
