Specialist film music composers In The Nursery announce the release of their latest silent film score - 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 traditional instrumentation and spacial sound design 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.

The Fall of the House of Usher (extract) new score by IN THE NURSERY (03:21)
The Fall of the House of Usher 1928 New score by IN THE NURSERY The screenplay for this flesh-crawlingly creepy film was written by Luis Buñuel, layering Spanish surrealism over Edgar Allan Poe’s American gothic. Polish-born director Jean Epstein was heavily influenced by French Impressionism, as well as the conventions of German Expressionism. The Fall of the House of Usher is a heady mix of all these ingredients: a disorienting and disturbing tale of love, loss and decay. The wide floors of the almost-empty sets conjure the deepest darkness, punctuated by a candle flame, or a glimpse of a bridal veil trailing from a coffin. The pained faces of Jean Debucourt as the artist Roderick and Marguerite Gance as his tortured bride convey melancholy more than fear. Roger Ebert wrote, hauntingly, that the film is “less a fiction than the realization of some phantasmagoric alternative reality”. It remains the most beautiful, and truly chilling, of horror movies.
