The Chemical Brothers have released the official video for their song 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 featuring Beck.
Taken from their album Born In The Echoes, the video centers 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.
