On Saturday there will be a full performance of Alexandr Scriabin’s “Prometheus” (“A Poem of Fire”). By “full performance” I mean it will include the “color organ” or a keyboard that triggers various light projections to accompany the truly trippy music. It should be quite a spectacle, accompanied by some informative expert guidance. 7:30 at the Kent Concert Hall; free for USU students with ID. (For a preview, check this out.)

This week also features a roundtable discussion with on “Esotericism and the Occult in the University”, featuring USU’s own Brian McCuskey (English) and Christopher Scheer (Music), along with Anna Gawboy (assistant professor of music at Ohio State) and Marco Pasi (associate professor of the history of hermetic philosophy at the University of Amsterdam). This will be Friday at 11:30 in Library 101. Your mind will never be the same.
