`Dead' Drummer Discovers Spacey Sounds
Mickey Hart: Loves the Big Bang sounds
Monday, February 1, 2010 17:33 GMTBERKELEY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Grateful Dead percussionist Mickey Hart has just created the spaciest sounds of his musical career.
Hart has been working with a Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist to determine what the Big Bang theory actually sounded like 13.7 billion years ago through his Rhythms Of The Universe project.
By converting Big Bang light waves into sound waves, Hart has been able to decipher the rhythms and noises that exploded from the planets, stars, and universe during that infamous moment that blew us into creation.
Hart says the epic event sounded like one big hiss with long, entrancing notes comparable to those of some psychedelic Dead songs.
He describes the Big Bang sounds as soothing and wonderfully sensual as if one were sitting in a rainforest.
He adds, Its very calm, like angels singing.
Hart is hoping to eventually release songs featuring the scientific sounds and play the cosmic music at Grateful Dead concerts.
