The Chemical Brothers on Electronic:
“Design is an essential element enhancing the experience of our live show. This new installation will give insight into how we work with Adam & Marcus (Smith & Lyall) on the visual aspect of our tours."
Smith & Lyall on Electronic:
“We are thrilled that Electronic at the Design Museum will be opening soon. It feels especially important in these times to celebrate the transformative power of music, art and design.Sharing this experience (safely) will, we hope, bring some welcome joy to anyone who visits.
“Our aim for the Chemical Brothers live show has always been to create a visual expression of the music and give the audience a visceral experience. We are excited to translate this to a museum setting for the first time.
“The visuals for Got To Keep On were initially inspired by fashion catwalk shows and 80’s New York Ballroom culture. This movement concept was combined with geometrically-themed costumes, initially visualized in 3D software. This CG character design approach was then deliberately transformed by using real performers and custom-made costumes. We creatively collaborated with the amazing Amit Lahav of Gecko Theatre who choreographed the piece. The dancers were shot in a studio using a combination of large-scale film lighting and theatrical strobe lighting.The varying light effects play off the form of the performers in costume to createa striking high-fashion look.”
