Instead this year, we will host a special music performance by ambient - electronic sound pioneer Steve Roach and a documentary film on Steve Roach by Kurt Lancaster, the head of Creative Media and Film at Northern Arizona University. Kurt will be in attendance to discuss his film and take questions from the audience, along with Steve.  Also departing from the tradition this year, this special event will be hosted by the Arivaca Dance Hall in the historic townsite of Arivaca.  “Steve Roach: Life in the Soundcurrent”  Is a 45-minute documentary film on the life and music of Steve Roach.  The film will begin at 1pm on February 17th.  A Q&A will be conducted after the film, followed by an approximate 35-minute live music performance by Steve Roach and a reception thereafter.     We hope to see you at the Arivaca Film Exhibition’s special film & music event!  Watch the trailer to “Steve Roach: Life in the Soundcurrent” below..
