Jorge F. P. Ramos was born in 1995, in Braga. From a young age he started to show a particular interest for music, and at the age of six he was accepted at the Calouste Gulbenkian Conservatory of Music in Braga, which he attended until 2013, studying several instruments – euphonium, piano, percussion and tuba – along with the formal music course there.

During the last three years at the Conservatory he specialised in composition, focussing primarily on score-reading and working in the Composition Laboratory with electronic music. Simultaneously, he performed with several of the Conservatory’s orchestras and choirs. In 2013 he entered the Escola Superior de Música in Lisbon.

In July 2014 he won 1st Composition Competition for Flutes of the 2ª Academia de Flauta de Verão (2nd Summer Flute Academy) based in Porto, Portugal. During his Composition studies, he had the opportunity to work with composers such as André Ruíz, Paulo Bastos, João Madureira, Sérgio Azevedo, Carlos Fernandes, Carlos Marecos, Roberto Pérez, António Pinho Vargas, António de Sousa Dias, Miguel Azguime, Simon Emmerson, Carlos Caires, José Luís Ferreira and Luís Tinoco.

In 2014 – 2015 was guest choralist of the Gulbenkian Choir of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

In June 2015 made his first soundtrack for the short film “Eterna Inógnita”, directed by Pedro Pereira.
