  • FROM : USA

Bynum has built a career navigating the intersections between structure and improvisation—through musical composition, performance, production, interdisciplinary collaboration, teaching, writing, advocacy, and more. His expressionistic playing on cornet and his expansive vision as a composer have garnered him critical attention on over twenty recordings as a bandleader and dozens more as a sideman. He currently leads his Sextet, 7-tette, and 15-piece PlusTet, and works with many collective ensembles. He is also a published author and contributor to The New Yorker’s Culture Blog; has taught at universities, festivals, and workshops worldwide; and has served as a panelist and consultant for leading funders, arts organizations, and individual artists. His work has received support from Creative Capital, Chamber Music America, New Music USA, USArtists International, and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, among others.
