Richard Reason's Musical Compositions

1965 - 70: Final year at Northgate Grammar School being taught by John Parry, first year at the Royal Academy under the influence of Cardew and The Scratch Orchestra.

From 1967 onwards the music becomes gradually more theatrical but since few of the pieces are dated the chronological order is approximate.

He believed that the composer is just one part of the creative process, with composer, performers and listeners all adding to the whole. Composers should not be put on a pedestal and so consequently he did not try and get his work published. He also did not like formal concerts.
