save for later

'Hypnosis' lies in the category of pieces that are re-workings of tracks originally co-written by Ian with David Hicks and Simon Painter when they worked together both in the studio and as a performing rock group. Chronologically they are the oldest in origin although they were revisited by Ian some years after the group disbanded.

'Hypnosis' was one of the most popular tracks in live performance alongside a more conventional set of rock songs. It evolved as a structured improvisation over numerous gigs between 1986 & 1988. The piece was developed into a piano and flute piece by Ian in 1994.

Many of the sixteenth/semi-quaver motifs of the piano were amongst new developments whilst the original opening bass line can still be heard. Inevitably due to the nature of its evolution as a piece the line of the flute has a naturally expressive, free and organic quality. There are no required extended techniques and the piece does not require open-holes or a B foot joint; there is an optional bend to the last note. There are easier alternatives for some of the runs and an optional high D climax; the less virtuosic runs are marked as the principal option whilst the more difficult runs are marked as the ossia or alternative.
