November 2 & 3 : Steve Roach All Souls Procession 2019, Tucson AZ
Saturday November 2 – Night of the Living – full concert at MSA Annex outdoor festival venue
Sunday November 3 – All Souls Procession performing the ceremony finale
Steve Roach performs the ceremony finale at Tucson’s All Souls Procession on Sunday November 3. He also presents a 2-hour concert the night before at MSA Annex outdoor festival venue in downtown Tucson.
The All Souls Procession Weekend enters it’s 30th year as one of North America’s most inclusive and authentic public ceremony. The entire All Souls Weekend is a celebration and mourning of the lives of our loved ones and ancestors on the other side. Today well over 150,000 participants gather on the streets of downtown Tucson for a two-mile long human-powered procession that ends in the ceremonial burning of a large Urn filled with the hopes, offerings and wishes for those who have passed.
Myriad altars, performers, installation art, and creatives of all kinds collaborate for almost half the year to prepare their offerings for this amazing event. The All Souls Procession, and now the entire All Souls Weekend, is a celebration and mourning of the lives of our loved ones and ancestors.
On Saturday the 2nd, Steve will be featured as a headlining artist at Night of the Living Fest at the MSA Annex, with a special two-hour set and album release party. Tickets are now on-sale. https://allsoulsprocession.org/2019-musical-guest-steve-roach/
On Sunday the 3rd, Steve has created an amazing soundscape for the finale of this 30th Annual Ceremony, which is free for all to attend.

Ambient Church is a nomadic experiential event series dedicated to working with artists to bring new ecologies to architecturally unique spaces through transcendent audio and visual performance.
On this long-awaited evening, we are thrilled to present Grammy-nominated, pioneering American synthesist and undisputed master of electronic music, Steve Roach. Steve takes us on a 2-hour journey, featuring work spanning his 40-year career including Dreamtime Return (1988), performed in a 132-year-old church in Pasadena.
Steve reflects, “I am currently in the deep end of prepping my set for the Pasadena concert — my live return to Los Angeles. The energy is building as the memories of coming back to where it all started — Los Angeles in the 80s — adds to the excitement. For this performance, the wide dynamic range of my work will be experienced, including portions of 1988’s Dreamtime Return. The church’s large concert hall environment significantly adds to the anticipation of performing in Los Angeles; that’s combined with knowing friends-of-the-music from as far way as France are coming in for the set. It all adds up to a special moment in time.”
Throughout the performance, the space will come alive with immersive, architecturally-mapped projections.
