Henry Threadgill makes an ultra-rare Austin appearance this weekend. The Chicago-born, New York City-stationed composer, flutist, and sax player appears at UT’s Music Recital Hall on Friday for a workshop and Q&A, then performs with his ensemble Zooid, Saturday at the Scottish Rite Theater. Via a Monday morning phone call, the recent Pulitzer Prize of Music winner spoke extensively of the life of an artist and creative longevity.
