About the Making of Relax and Dream

Three years in the making, Relax and Dream was inspired by Kate Murdoch’s music work at the bedsides of sick babies and children in hospital, and the need for connection with the natural environment and soothing sounds whilst undergoing treatment. You can watch the 7-min ‘Making of’ documentary here, which includes behind-the-scenes footage of the production journey and interviews with clinical staff at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton about the need for the project. For further details about the R&D production team, please visit the ‘Credits’ track page.
