If you’re into science and music, there’s the perfect event for you going on this weekend in New York City. Grateful Dead’s drummer and Grammy-award winning legend Mickey Hart is set to perform today and tomorrow evening (April 13 & 14) at the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium.
Hart has partnered up with the museum’s director of Astrovisualization Carter Emmart to deliver Musica Universalis: The Greatest Story Ever Told — a live performance which tells a musical and visual journey by exploring the connection between music and the vibratory universe. Attendees will also be able to enjoy Our Senses: An Immersive Experience — a walk-through of the museum’s exhibition which samples Hart’s last album, RAMU.
Aside from the performances, the event will also provide a drink, a Q&A session with Hart, Emmart, and neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley, a special edition vinyl copy of Hart’s album, and an overall learning and entertaining experience based on Hart’s work with prominent neuroscientists, showing the effects of vibration on the brain.
The event begins at 7 PM and you must be 21 or over to attend. Tickets are available at the American Museum of Natural History website.
