7o'clock is an offering in reverence to the Daemon, Angel, and Muse. A time and space dedicated to pure experience free of explanations, artist statements, or analysis. From music and dance to literature and theater, every Sunday brings new artists and a new performance – as the clock strikes 7.
“And how she sang! Her voice no longer at play, her voice a jet of blood, worthy of her pain and her sincerity, opened like a ten-fingered hand as in the feet, nailed there but storm-filled...” -Lorca
“I believe that magic is art, and that art, whether that be music, writing, sculpture, or any other form, is literally magic. Art is, like magic, the science of manipulating symbols, words, or images, to achieve changes in consciousness...Indeed to cast a spell is simply to spell, to manipulate words, to change people's consciousness, and this is why I believe that an artist or writer is the closest thing in the contemporary world to a shaman.” -Alan Moore
“Our normal human voice goes no further than the human ear, beyond that it dies to nothing and is extinguished. But the breath that is bright with the light of the gods, being the breath of the universe, does not die out. It is transformed into the spirit of the divine, and becomes a way to obtain the heart of heaven.''
