The Mickey Hart Band

Best known as one half of the Grateful Dead's percussive duo, the Rhythm Devils, Mickey Hart has spent decades immersed in the study of global music and polyrhythmic explorations. His last collaboration, the Global Drum Project, snagged the 2009 Grammy for Best Contemporary World Music Album, joining his ’91 Grammy for the Billboard-topping Planet Drum. In his 2012 album, Mysterium Tremendum, Hart even collaborated with NASA to turn light waves from astronomic observation into musical beats, layering melodies and words over the galactic grooves.

From such macrocosmic heights, Hart shifts focus to something more personal. On his latest album, Superorganism, the drummer known for taking fans on metaphysical head-trips doubles-down on a daring new concept: a literal musical head-trip. "This time we journey into the micro, the hidden worlds of rhythm within us, within our bodies," Hart explains on his webpage. "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." Like a lie detector test you can dance to, an EEG cap strapped to Hart's head helps him recreate tracks from Superorganism while a rotating cast of musical friends, including Tony Award–winning vocalist Crystal Monee Hall and Grammy-winning percussionist Sikiru Adepoju, embellish his bodily percussion.
