'No Gates, No White Trenches, Butterfly Effect'

With No Gates, No White Trenches, Butterfly Effect—which receives its world premiere during American Composers Orchestra's Playing It UNsafe on March 6in Zankel Hall—composer and avant-jazz provocateur Henry Threadgill explodes the orchestra-conductor paradigm with improvisation and new musical constructions.

In this pair of videos from American Composers Orchestra's Playing it UNsafe Composer Journeys, Threadgill discusses orchestral improvisation; helping classically trained musisicians to overcome their fear of improvisation; and using rehearsals for exploration of the music.
