Quadrivium: the four subjects of a medieval university curriculum, comprised of arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, and music.

The mission of The Quadrivium Project is to engage faculty and students in a collaborative model based on creative destruction and renewal. Their upcoming concert features the music of Pink Floyd and Genesis and explores/interrogates political and philosophical concepts of capitalism, power, and social class.
