In The Nursery - The Seashell & the Clergyman



In The Nursery announce the release of a new soundtrack album - 'The Seashell & the Clergyman' - the 9th in their Optical Music series. Widely recognised as the first surrealist film, 'The Seashell and the Clergyman' is a complex, controversial and multi-layered film directed by Germaine Dulac, from an original scenario by Antonin Artaud. Back in days it was banned, stated as "If there is a meaning, it is doubtless objectionable".

Listed as one of the great Feminist Films, the movie is described as "a visually imaginative critique of patriarchy – state and church – and of male sexuality."

In The Nursery’s new score sonically reinterprets the inherent symbolism of the film, utilising sound design and experimental recording approaches.
