When music tells an amazing story, when every note has a deeper purpose, and listeners are transported to another world. These are the goals of Hush, an astounding collaboration between Australian children, young cancer patients and our nation’s most accomplished musical minds.
Hush 16: A Piece of Quiet is a new collection of original music featuring singer-songwriter Lior, composer Elena Kats-Chernin and The Idea of North. These are very bright musical stars indeed but the courageous children shine even brighter.
What exactly did the collaboration look like? The artists themselves posed questions to the children in a series of informal conversations about life. The remarkable answers they were given became an irresistible source of musical inspiration.
Each composition in Hush 16: A Piece of Quiet strives to express wonder and wisdom as only children can, uniting people of all ages in the joy of life. They may be ARIA winners, household names and regular fixtures at Fine Music FM but music like this can only arise from the minds and hearts of little ones.
