Abstract

Knitting Unicorns was commissioned by the Hush Foundation for recording and premiere in 2018. Originally developed by Dr. Catherine Crock to reduce stress and anxiety felt by both patients and their families in hospitals, the Hush music collection transforms the environment through the use of especially composed music from some of Australia’s foremost musicians and talents. It is now played in hospitals, homes and shared spaces across the globe.Program note: "When I had the opportunity to visit the Royal Hobart Hospital, there was bright colour on the walls, sunshine outside, and young people playing on their electronic devices or watching bad TV. One young lady, however, spent much of her time studying her high school textbooks, and knitting voraciously. In the bed next to hers was a toddler who was captivated by some unicorns from the hospital's toy box. Coincidentally, the knitter was also knitting a unicorn. Maybe the magic of this mythical yet beautiful creature transports children of all ages to their happy place."
