In the past two years, Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead/Mickey Hart Band) has sonified the Universe, the Golden Gate Bridge, the America's Cup, and now, he is going even deeper.   On his new record SUPERORGANISM, released on August 13, 2013, Hart is breaking new ground by combining music with science and the human body. " For the last few years I have been creating music from the source sounds of the cosmos and now the body. These sounds are noise—harsh, strange—and it is only after dancing with their essence face to face that music can be created. This time we journey into the micro, the hidden worlds of rhythm within us, within our bodies," says Hart. "My brain wave signals are reimagined in sound using a cap with electrodes that can read the throbs and signals of the brain. I have also sonified the sounds of stem cells, and heart rhythms for this recording. "   On SUPERORGANISM, Hart has once again paired up with longtime collaborator and Grateful Dead lyricist, Robert Hunter, as well as, many special guest musicians.

All pre-orders include instant downloads of the first two tracks on the album, "Falling Stars" and "The Sermon".
