Screen Shot 2013-08-26 at 9.49.54 AM

Music is ingrained into our everyday existence: we spend an eighth of our waking lives listening. We’re surrounded by sound. (Thank you Internet, thank you headphones, thank god for headphones.) But what do we sound like?

That’s the question at the core of Mickey Hart’s project, Superorganism. The former Grateful Dead drummer and musicologist’s new album explores the intersection between music and the body, by turning brainwaves into sound.

In this week’s BitTorrent Bundle: an exclusive, in-depth look at Superorganism, and the rhythms within us. We tripped out to Hart’s studio to hear Bram Cohen’s brain on sound, and talk about the history of Dead taping.Then, we taped the Mickey Hart Band live in Healdsburg, in high def. Download the Bundle, and unlock the HD concert experience.

About BitTorrent Bundles

The BitTorrent Bundle is an Alpha project, made with and for the web’s creative community. Our mission is to help artists connect directly with fans, inside the content they share.

Each BitTorrent Bundle, like the one created in partnership with Mickey Hart, allows artists to distribute content to 170 million BitTorrent users. And each Bundle comes with a key. Fans can unlock artist content with an email address, or a donation. The idea is to make each song a storefront; and each file more valuable, each time it’s shared. Got ideas for the next BitTorrent Bundle? Hit us up.
