One of a collection of 200 solo pieces commissioned to celebrate the bicentenary of the Royal Academy of Music in 2022.

Ramiform means branch-like. This rhapsodic piece branches out freely from its source material, an encoded version of RAM (re-A-mi = D-A-E), plus the year of the RAM’s founding, 1822, which translates using set theory to C#-G#-D-D.

Ramiform is dedicated to Marcel Becker, principal double bass of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and a friend for many years.
