Arrow The Chemical Brothers - Don't Think - Movie

You blink awake and find yourself halfway up the side of a Japanese mountain. It's night time, right at the sticky middle point of summer. You're in an opening in a darkened wood surrounded by - say - 50,000 other revelers, each of them frenzied; delirious from an all-encompassing psychedelia that seems to be emanating from a stage somewhere in the near distance. Above you, lights swoop and strafe across armies of marching toy robots and galloping deconstructed horses; paint balls explode in front of borderline psychotic clowns. You're in the thick of it, consumed by the spectacle, absorbed into the crowd, surrendering to the noise and the visuals. Stunned by the jaw-dropping intensity of what you're witnessing, just one thought flashes through your febrile mind.
Don't think. Let it flow.
Filmed July 31 at Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, the flick "places cameras in the centre of the stage as well as at the very heart of the crowd to perfectly capture a fan's eye view of the heightened emotional reactions of the audience seeing the band at their very best," says director Adam Smith, the act's long-term visuals collaborator.

"After 18 years of working on the Chemical Brothers live show we have finally captured it on film; you could almost say it's 18 years in the making," he continues. "The aim was to create a different type of concert film for a different type of show."

There's also a nice twist with special behind-the-scenes footage complete with far-out visuals that "follows selected audience members away from the stage and out into the natural environment."

"I wanted to capture what it is like to experience the show from right in the middle of the crowd as well as showing and combining the visuals featured in the show with the footage we captured on this one night; to see how the music and visuals emotionally affect and connect with the audience."

'Don't Think' is being billed as the first-ever concert recorded in Dolby 7:1 surround sound, and was mixed especially for the big screen. Judging from the trailer below, it's going to be pretty awesome, too.


Looks nuts. Loving it. One of the very few 'electronic' artists who never cease to put out interesting music, in what's become a pretty boring unimaginative genre since around the mid-2000's.
