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. The BBFC famously banned the film stating "If there is a meaning, it is doubtless objectionable". Listed as one of the great Feminist Films, the BFI describe it 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.
