For a diehard music fan, the hardest adjustment of all is the silence that descends when the band has finished playing and the lights are turned back up. In the absence of music, other senses fill the void. This exhibition looks at the paradoxical phenomenon of hearing music when nobody is playing.

Ted Riederer - Artist’s Statement
My recent work has focused upon my metaphysical relationship to music, and more specifically the redemptive, and transcendental facets of the performance of music, and the subcultures surrounding music. Through sound installations, painting, and performance I seek ways to re-imagine and re-enchant the world.
