of the Universe

Bill was my best friend, the best friend I ever had. He was an amazing person, singular, irreplaceable, giving, loving. His love for our music was beyond description. He called himself the luckiest man in the world but it was us who were lucky—to know him, to share the adventure with him. He was the biggest Deadhead in the world and used our music as the soundtrack to his life. After our shows, he would regularly send messages that said, “thank you for my life.” Over 1000 shows, he just couldn’t get enough. Bill had an incredible passion for drums. After any meal at his house, we would play. There was nothing like a Bill Walton… nothing. There are things you can replace. And others you cannot. Bon voyage, old friend, I love you.

“The basis of all life is vibratory. Creating visual magic is new to me. With my pouring technique I can experience the wonder of chaos and the flow-all the glorious symmetry in one.” ~Mickey Hart

In a mesmerizing pouring session, Mickey forges a path that transcends conventional boundaries, pioneering the captivating realm of rhythmic art. With his groundbreaking technique of vibrational expressionism, he merges the worlds of music, art, and the vibratory universe, creating a symphony of creativity. As Mickey paints on Arco, the steel easel, he dances to the beat of his own rhythm, guided by the harmonious interplay of colors and textures. Poncho, the spinner, becomes his partner in artistic exploration, spinning and swirling the hues into a breathtaking spectacle of motion. The Beam, the Pythagorean monochord, vibrates in resonance with a Meyer subwoofer, unraveling hidden depths within Mickey’s paintings, breathing life into every intricate detail. Like a pendulum in motion, Mickey’s creations swing gracefully, evoking a symphony of emotions through his rhythmic strokes. In this pouring session, Mickey not only crafts exceptional artworks but also paves the way for a new artistic frontier, where the synergy of music, art, and vibrations harmoniously converge, inspiring and enchanting all who witness the magic of his rhythmic artistry.

Rhythms of Tomorrow

the big pour

The adventure of composition is a mystery. The muse has her ways, she hides from you, comes for you in the middle of the night, at midday, at dawn. You must believe wholeheartedly in this divine power. Its an elusive gift that can appear at any time, anywhere. Artists are in awe of it.

Vibrational Expressionism

These visual representations from my sonic driven world are snapshots into the music I am making. The basis of all life is vibratory, from the cosmos to human organism, to the rhythms of nature and the music that comes from what we make, from what we call culture. These are the worlds of rhythm that envelop us on a daily basis. Understanding these rhythms are essential in our daily lives.



Mickey Hart Albums

Music is the most natural and potent tool for harmonizing the world. Music transcends the limitations of color, politics, geography, wealth, gender, and age. It is oblivious to divisions and disparities, recognizing only the harmonious collaboration that unites individuals and communities in the act of its creation. By bringing together these diverse forces in both music makers and listeners alike, we achieve the harmonization of society.


The Mickey Hart Collection from Smithsonian Folkways preserves and furthers the Grateful Dead percussionist’s endeavor to cross borders and expand musical horizons. The collection begins with 25 albums drawn from “The World,” a series that incorporates Mickey’s solo projects, other artists’ productions, and re-releases of out-of-print titles. Six of the twenty-five albums form the “Endangered Music Project,” a collaboration between Mickey and the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, which presents recordings from musical traditions at risk.
