Ramifications can be performed either with twelve solo strings or with a string orchestra in twelve parts. The forces are divided into two groups: The latter group plays retuned, to a quarter-tone above the first group.
Ligeti uses a rhythmic process in Ramifications that’s similar to a technique used in the harpsichord piece Continuumwritten around the same time, in which fast-repeating small motifs phase with one another forming new rhythmic “nodes” and pulsing macro-rhythms.
In Ramifications he applies an scote principle to pitch. By tuning the two groups of instruments a quarter-tone apart, he initiated a performance situation in which the two groups will subconsciously attempt to retune to each other. The different degrees to which individual players will make this “correction” produces the unfocussed harmonic world of Ramifications: Ramifications begins similarly to the Cello Concertowith a narrow range of pitches gradually expanded while also ascending.
The ascent leads to near-stasis before the texture thickens and something like a true melody intervenes, fleetingly.
Ramificcations changes in dynamics mark the second half of the piece, in which the predominant texture reverts to phase-shifting rhythmic patterns.
At about the seven-minute mark, double bass at its lowest range signals the beginning of the end.
