about

In The Nursery's latest silent film project - The Fall of the House of Usher - Jean Epstein & Luis Bunuel's 1928 interpretation of Edgar Allan Poe's classic tale of paranoia and suspense.

In The Nursery's new score is the 8th in their Optical Music Series, a repertoire of work dating from 1996 and including landmark titles such as The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, Man with a Movie Camera and The Passion of Joan of Arc.

In The Nursery's new score incorporates sound design along with more traditional instrumentation (inc. shruti box & sansula) to encompass the Gothic nature of Epstein and Bunuel's avante-garde vision. With haunting, and at times stunning, imagery, this movie really is film as art and In The Nursery's score helps to reinforce the art of film.

FILM SYNOPSIS
As his beloved wife Madeleine succumbs to a mysterious illness, Sir Roderick Usher invites his old friend Allan to his castle for support. He arrives to find Roderick consumed with completing a painting of Madeline, something that seems to draw the life out of her with every brush stroke he makes. Once the picture is finished, Madeline collapses, and her physician confirms she is dead. After a solemn funeral, a ghostly presence invades the house of Usher…

Cinema’s first true Gothic horror.
