Weightless was commissioned by David Heyes for DOUBLE BASS 2000 with funds provided by The Performing Right Society (PRS) and was premiered at Trinity College of Music (London) on 8 October 2000 by Georgina Poad (double bass) and Mark Ray (piano). It was first published as part of Bass-in-Space in 2001, which is no longer in print, and has been newly typeset in 2009.

Aimed at the intermediate bassist, there are few technical or musical challenges but great scope for creating a range of moods and images within a brief timespan. The accompaniment is both independent and supportive, often chordal and sustained, creating a soundscape above which the solo bass can create lines of intense beauty and simplicity.
