Watch Beck and the Chemical Brothers’ Experimental New Video

By Hayden Wright

The Chemical Brothers‘ new collaboration with Beck titled “Wide Open” now has the offbeat, innovative video it deserves. Directed by Dom&nic, the clip uses experimental CG technology to up the ante on modern dance.

In the video, dancer Sonoya Mizuno performs a solo interpretation of the song—but her body incrementally disappears into a virtual mesh form. Inside her webbed exterior is a beating heart, elegantly representing the song’s lyrical vulnerability.

“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 [Mizuno] comprising of 107 individual anatomic rigs, as well as bespoke tools to allow the seamless transformation which happens during the dance,” explains the video’s release.
