    Last summer, The Chemical Brothers released Born in the Echoes, their first album since 2010. The LP, which has since gone on to earn the UK outfit a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album, boasts a number of collaborations, including the Beck-aided “Wide Open”.

    Today, its accompanying music video has been revealed, directed by dom&nic (The Smashing Pumpkins, David Bowie, Trent Reznor). It focuses on a dancer whose body morphs into a non-flesh entity, allowing viewers to see her in a most intimate way — literally wide open. A press release details the technical process behind the clip:

    “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.”
