David Reaston

David Reaston is a Sydney based guitarist who composes and improvises 21st Century Art Music. The cut and splice, intellectual internal reference, and sonic blasts of his “10 Guitar Project“, combined with freebased improvisation have confirmed him as an audacious innovator. As well as pointed abstraction, David is known for his symmetrical handshakes and a beautiful take on traditional standards, particularly his use of reharmonisation and polyphony.

David has a Master of Music degree in Composition from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and a Bachelor of Jazz Studies from the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music. He has also studied privately in New York City. David has released two albums as a leader - 10 Guitar Project (2010) and After Now (2004), one as a co-leader - The Reaston-Kay Effect (2008), in addition to being a featured soloist on other albums. He is currently playing with the 10 Guitar Project, RKC Effect and ARIA award winning artist Max Sharam. He teaches guitar and improvisation at the Australian Institute of Music and composition at the Conservatorium High-school in Sydney....
