During his freeform period Hyman played electric piano and later added the organ and synthesiser to the instruments at his command. From the late 50s through to the early 70s Hyman worked as a musician, arranger and composer for Enoch Light's Grand Award, Command Records and Project 3 labels, though as he was still contracted to other labels during this period many of his recordings were released under a pseudonymous title. The surprise 1969 US Top 40 hit "The Minotaur", credited to Dick Hyman And His Electric Eclectics, was the first single ever to be entirely performed on a synthesiser.
