Mickey Hart, drummer for the Grateful Dead, has formed a new group to go in a new direction.

Hart told Rolling Stone "For the last two or three years I've been sampling light waves from the cosmos, starting 13.7 billion years ago with the Big Bang. The signals come from radio telescopes around the world and I work closely with NASA to take the light waves and bring it into our limited spectrum of hearing. Then I add a little spice to them with some reverb and some delay. It makes for a hot little stew."
