Ric Graebner studied music at the Universities of Cambridge and York, then lectured at Southampton University, England and William Paterson College, New Jersey.  His compositions are internationally broadcast and performed by ensembles such as Lontano and the Arditti Quartet and attract sponsorship from the Arts Council of Great Britain, IBM, TVS and private patrons. Apart from featuring in his own and other contemporary premières, mainly as pianist or conductor, occasionally other keyboards, percussion, technician  and D.S.M., he directs professional ensembles and various orchestras and choirs in works ranging from the Webern Concerto Op.24 to Gluck's  Iphigénie en Aulide (complete concert performance -1991) .
He now composes full time and runs his own electronic studio.
