Henry Threadgill in Residence: Compositional Solutions for Student Composers

contemporary, jazz, masterclasses
Choral Room – Room 1325 – Schoenberg Music Building

Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Henry Threadgill leads a workshop for student composers aimed at helping them solve composition problems with a holistic approach that addresses each student’s needs individually. Threadgill, who won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2016 for his album In for a Penny, In for a Pound, has been called “perhaps the most important jazz composer of his generation” by The New York Times. As a composer, he combines African, African American, and other world traditions in what can truly be considered “world music.” He is also a saxophonist and flutist who has fronted various eclectic ensembles over the years. Q&A follows.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
