Think Olio
Second-time host

This summer Think Olio and Groumpuse will be partnering to bring you chamber music paired with a miscellaneous lecture. Spend the evening engaging a topic from the humanities with a brilliant professor, beer in hand, before sinking into a set of beautiful chamber music.

In this Olio, we will listen to musical performances by Groupmuse to both feel and think through what Fuller calls the “rapid transition; the spiral and undulatory movement” of music. Fuller’s erotic experiences listening to Beethoven were crucial to her intellectual and sexual awakening. Likewise, playing music was important to many American women in the nineteenth century who were learning to engage their bodies to take up space and be heard. We will think about how music is linked to an awareness of space, body, and self, and how that awareness translates into self-assertion and even social revolution through conversation, listening, and community organizing. How does music act on the individual and the collective to make one feel a part of something greater?
