Beck And Chemical Brothers Want You To Dance “Wide Open” In Latest Video

  /  01.25.2016

The Chemical Brothers’ 2015 album Born in the Echoes, ended with the sublime single “Wide Open” featuring Beck. And today (January 25) the UK electronic duo shares the supernatural accompanying video.

Directed by longtime Chemical collaborator Dom & Nic, the grainy filter clip centers on a dancer performing in an open warehouse, as her body undergoes a gradual transformation. According to a press release, “Dom & Nic’s vision was to merge the mechanical and organic, having been inspired by procedural cellular structures; their VFX Team at The Mill 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.”

Previously, Dom & Nic directed videos for the Chemical Brothers’ “Midnight Madness” and “Believe,” as well as Trent Reznor and David Bowie’s “I’m Afraid of Americans.”
