Chris Hyson writes about ‘Little Moon Man’ – Vortex premiere and download, 25th Feb

Bassist Chris Hyson writes about his set of piano music ‘Little Moon Man’, played by Kit Downes. The work will be premiered on Monday 25th February at the Vortex, in a double bill with Richard Fairhurst – and available from the same date as a download on iTunes, AmazonMP3, and bandcamp.com

How it came about…  

I spent a lot of time experimenting with different musicians and instrumentation to find the right combination for this music. After some time, I came to realise that it was best suited to being played on the piano alone, as that’s where I spend a lot of my time composing – alone on the piano.

I got in contact with Kit Downes, a pianist I have always loved as an improviser and a composer and we got together for a day to record it. We were really happy with the outcome so decided to release it for download.

When I write music, I try to be as honest as possible, drawing influence from my own personal life experiences, and the relationships I have with others.
