Mickey Hart Presents Musica Universalis
Join legendary Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart for a unique program at the Museum. The evening begins with a walk-through of the special exhibition Our Senses: An Immersive Experience featuring a curated soundscape based on Hart’s recently released album, RAMU. Then, join Hart in the Hayden Planetarium Dome for an electrifying live performance of Musica Universalis, created in collaboration with the Museum’s Director of Astrovisualization Carter Emmart.
RAMU is available now on CD or Digital. Get your copy today!
While most albums function as a snapshot of a place and time, RAMU is more like a photo album, containing samples and recordings from around the globe, originating between 1944 and 2017. It’s about creation through collaboration, through combination, and through inclusion.
