Random Access Music

Random Access Music (RAM) is a new music presenter in the United States with a core collective of composers and performers presenting a wide array of contemporary music from the United States and abroad.

“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

"It’s not something they’re going to be able to download off of Spotify really quick."

— Chris Graham, percussionist, on NY1

The RAM Composers represent a broad spectrum of American aesthetics, styles, and voices and revel in music of all types.
