About Us
Random Access Music (RAM) is a NYC-based new music presenter and ensemble with a core collective of composers and performers presenting a wide array of contemporary music from the United States and abroad. RAM's mission is to promote and produce high caliber composition and performance of music by living American composers and composers from aboard in a variety of venues throughout New York City, with an emphasis in Queens; to foster a fully-engaged and fruitful collaborative spirit between composers and performers; to nurture connections with audiences through engaging productions and media outreach; to build new audiences for new music by bringing greater awareness to the general public through outreach, education, and scholarship.

“Move over Brooklyn, Queens is staking its claim

for new-music street cred [via] Random Access Music.”

— Allan Kozinn, The New York Times

“Random Access Music, one of the things that has been making Queens cool.”

— Brooklyn Rail

"Yelps, yowls and dry creaky hisses. These aren’t the sounds you might ordinarily associate with the clarinet

- and you would be equally surprised to declare these sounds beautiful."

— Neil Chiragdin, Queens Chronicle

Random Access Music’s programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
