Bryan Junod

Composer, 2020

Bryan Junod is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and train whistle collector who is finding new ways to put two and two together. Drawing on his background in mathematics, Bryan explores the binomial theorem and other mathematical ideas in works that combine the whimsical with the serious, and the forgotten with the all-too-familiar. His music has been performed by Fifth House Ensemble, Momenta Quartet, Contemporaneous, and dozens of his musical friends at
Binghamton University. He was selected for Longy’s Divergent Studio hosted by loadbang in both 2019 and 2020 and has recently been recognized with the Philip Friedheim Memorial Award for an outstanding music graduate student at Binghamton University.

Bryan is a native of Cicero, New York. He completed his Master of Music degree in composition in 2020 under Dr. Daniel Davis and Wally Gunn at Binghamton University, where he also received his Bachelor of Arts degrees in music and mathematics in 2018. As a violinist and musical sawyer, he has performed for 4 years with the Binghamton University Symphony Orchestra and has premiered over 2 dozen new works by Binghamton composers. When he’s not
making tunes, Bryan can usually be found adding to his train whistle collection, admiring his train whistle collection, or bragging about his train whistle collection. Did you know he has a train whistle collection?
