Description

Treasure Hunt for the Imagination. Time travel around Edinburgh's Shore with this award-winning audio tour. This online show can be experienced in-person as a walking tour, used on a mobile device with earphones; or virtually as a sound exploration of north Edinburgh. Immersive sound takes you on a 200-year journey from the 1918 pandemic to the artist's 2020 lockdown residence and through a time portal to the future in 2120. Nine little secrets of Leith are uncovered at stopping points en route. The walk is about 1.5 miles and takes an hour. Includes free magic.

Interesting walk with some amazing sound design - challenged me to think about my own past & future while also including some magic of an area of Edinburgh I didn’t know much about beforehand.
