The Chemical Brothers ft. Beck – Wide Open

Directed by their long-term video collaborators dom&nic – previous visuals include the legendary ‘Hey Boy Hey Girl’ and ‘Setting Sun’ videos –  The Chemical Brothers release the stunning new video for ‘Wide Open ft Beck’.

Taken from their number 1 album ‘Born In The Echoes’, the video centres on the evocative dance of a young woman whose body transgresses from flesh to another form throughout the course of the songs haunting vocals and delicate but powerful production.

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 Reznors’ ‘I’m Afraid of Americans’ and ‘Ava Adore’ by The Smashing Pumpkins.
