1830s Edinburgh.
A New Town emerges from the stench of the Old.
In the will of a dead General, a bequest for a School of Music.
The lucrative trade in bodies for dissection is about to grind to a halt.

Staves and Graves is an immersive soundwalk, weaving narrative performance and soundscape to tell a grisly tale of nineteenth century Edinburgh.

Download the audio, and start at the gate to the right of Hugh Robson Building on George Square, heading through it towards Charles St Lane.

Oh, and watch your pockets...
