Rob Clearfield Quartet
Rob Clearfield Quartet
The Rob Clearfield Quartet came together for one reason and one reason only: to perform Ben Monder's underappreciated masterpiece Excavation. Upon learning of this endeavor, the composer himself, Ben Monder, offered encouragement to the group, telling them to “have fun” at their show. After a successful inaugural performance of Excavation in September, the Quartet continues to bring its message of polytonality and motivic development to the people.

The Rob Clearfield Quartet is:
Leslie Beukelman - voice
Rob Clearfield - keyboards
Patrick Mulcahy - bass
Quin Kirchner - drums

performing the music of Ben Monder
Information Superhighway
Information Superhighway was formed in 2004 out of the chemistry between vocalist Leslie Beukelman and keyboardist/composer Rob Clearfield. Along with bandmates Patrick Mulcahy (bass) and John Smillie (drums), the Superhighway blended equal parts jazz improvisation, ambient shoegaze, prog rock, and hope-in-the-face-of-modern-existential-dread to create their own sonic landscape. After two albums and countless shows, Information Superhighway casually disbanded in 2012. On December 12, they will reunite for one night only!

Information Superhighway:
Leslie Beukelman - voice
Rob Clearfield - keyboards, compositions
Patrick Mulcahy - bass
John Smillie - drums
