Permanent Video Installation at the Times Square Building, New York
Seven different versions of 21 min 36 sec
Like a gaze through an open window, SEVEN is an abstract composition into the ever-changing tones of nature. It celebrates the everlasting effect of light in our lives by exploring the seven colors of the visible spectrum.
The metamorphosis of colors, shapes and tones that gradually change from morning blue shades to flamboyant reds, and the sounds that echo these becoming, are an experience of time with light as its symbol.
The musical score of SEVEN mirrors, both conceptually and rhythmically, the visual creation. The pace of the work and the evolution within the seven cycles - starting from the ‘biblical’ harp, and ending with the ‘modern’ electric guitar - symbolize the evolution of time, from the beginning to the ending of a day.

I heard them in concert at Mondavi Center, UC Davis on Thurs. 3/15/18. Stunningly beautiful artistry from both Cohen and Hersch. I didn’t want it to end. Just so memorable. Can’t wait to hear them again. margneu
