2005 Artist in Residence Henry Threadgill was awarded this year’s Pulitzer Prize for music,“In for a Penny, in for a Pound,” Mr. Threadgill’s award-winning album, is a suite-like composition released on two discs by Pi Recordings last year. When he was at Harvestworks his project was a score for the film The Hubcaphone that mixed two of his compositional styles together that utilized live and processed instrumental parts. Henry is one of Americas most creative saxophonists who, over a career more than 35 years long, became both a leader in jazz, and a composer who equals anyone working in any form of music today. Harvestworks presented the Hubcaphone at the 2007 New York Electronic Art Festival. (2016)
