Ermir Bejo, born in 1987 in Tirana Albania, is a contemporary classical and electronic music composer. Both within and apart from his music, Bejo draws significant influence from visual art, cinema, classic literature, mathematics, and philosophy. Bejo’s approach is grounded in the exploration of hierarchies and conflicts arising from the treatment of musical time as a non-linear concept. His music is performed in concert halls and music festivals by a growing roster of internationally acclaimed performers and ensembles such as Ums ‘n Jip, Nova, Amorsima Trio, Duo Chromatica, Irvine Arditti, Malgorzata Walentynowicz, Elizabeth McNutt, Redi Llupa, Alexander Richards, Yumi Suehiro, and Juan Sebastian Delgado among others.

Bejo holds degrees in music composition from the University of North Texas (PhD, 2017), University of Louisville (MM, 2013), and Skidmore College (BA, 2010). He has additionally participated in numerous lessons and masterclasses with composers such as Chaya Czernowin, James Dillon, and Esa-Pekka Salonen among others. Since 2015, he has served as director of the Score Follower organization, a leading online new music resource. In collaboration with composers, performers, major publishers, and recording labels alike, the organization curates music projects with a wide international reach and participation. He has taught music composition and audio technology since 2012. From 2016 to 2017, he served as president of the Composers Forum organization at the University of North Texas. Currently, Bejo serves on the board of Kaleidoscope MusArt organization in Miami, and works as audio reinforcement technical director at the University of North Texas’ College of Music, which is the largest public university music program in the United States.
