During The Dead’s Spring Tour, Mickey Hart premiered the Universe of Sound. According to the drummer’s camp, “each night of the tour Hart connected audiences with the universe’s most celestial vibrations from the Big Bang to the rings of Saturn to the Black Hole.”
“The idea was to take our audience on a nightly tour of some part of our universe during our ‘space concerto’ section,” Hart said in a statement. “The next day we put it up on our website so the kids could follow it.” The music peaked the interest of heads at the History Channel’s The Universe series. Representatives from the program came out to Hart’s studio and spent an afternoon doing interviews for the segment being produced on Pulsars and Quasars. The show is scheduled to air on Tuesday October 27 at 9:00 PM EST.
