IN THE NURSERY is the Sheffield-based musical project centered around the nucleus of twin brothers Klive and Nigel Humberstone. ITN's musical history spans 30 years and has constantly expressed their desire for progress and experimentation. Their sublime, cinematic music blends electronica, classical arrangements, orchestral percussion and soundscapes evoking a timeless quality.
IN THE NURSERY have released more than two dozen albums since 1981. The creative progress of the band’s albums has always consolidated their distinctive sound while taking on board contemporary influences.
ITN’s music has been used on numerous film soundtracks and trailers including Game of Thrones, Gran Torino, Beowulf, The Aviator, Interview with the Vampire, Along Came a Spider and The Rainmaker as well as the La Femme Nikita TV series.
Parallel to their studio works, ITN have spent the last twelve years
developing their Optical Music Series, new scores for classic silent films. The series to date has included The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, Asphalt, Man with a Movie Camera, Hindle Wakes, A Page of Madness, Electric Edwardians and their latest The Passion of Joan of Arc. ITN have performed their new scores at film festivals around the world.
IN THE NURSERY’s last studio album ‘Blind Sound’ was released April 2011. Their latest creation is the thematic soundtrack The Calling.
