Soundtrack for an Exhibition
Ron Terada
December 9, 2000 — January 14 , 2001

Soundtrack for an Exhibition is a continuing project conceived and first exhibited as a poster produced by the Western Front, then as wall text at the Illingworth Kerr Gallery in Calgary. Soundtrack for an Exhibition is an evolving list of song titles; the basis for a “mixed tape” of recommended listening. For the Or, Terada has created a scrolling list of these titles on video. The video will be projected and will appear much like a credit sequence one might see at the end of a film. The video will be accompanied by an audio CD, available at the gallery, and complete with a recording of each song in the list. The work is a private soundtrack to an unseen movie and echoes the growing advent of web based audio download sites that allow consumers to sidestep packaged CD’s to craft and disseminate their own audio playlists.
