About Playtime presents Caligari

Guitarist Graeme Stephen has become an expert in creating new live soundtracks to classic films of the silent era. A composer of rich imagination, with a special talent for evoking a sense of place, Stephen draws on experience in writing for his own groups and the Dutch string quartet Zapp4 to match onscreen action with musical detail.

His successes include acclaimed scores for Nosferatu, Faust, Metropolis and The Navigator and his work for The Cabinet of Dr Caligari continues this run.

Working with saxophonist Martin Kershaw and bassist Mario Caribe, with whom he founded Edinburgh's award-winning Playtime sessions alongside drummer Tom Bancroft, Stephen will transport the audience through a world of horror with haunting themes and chills aplenty in this Halloween special.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Playtime presents Caligari are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
