Aidan Ramsay was born in Portland, Oregon. He became interested in music at an early age, eventually learning to play the saxophone. Initially most interested in mid-century jazz, Ramsay also became fascinated with classical music from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Both of these influences are very much present in his music, especially with regards to the exploration of timbre and texture as fundamental musical forces. He currently lives in Eugene, Oregon.
