Music can deeply alter our mood, our perception and our lives. Music is the soundtrack of our life. Head Full Of Drums is music that uplifts, enlightens and energizes the soul. Each song is composed and played with the spirit of healing and bringing positive change to the listener. The primal rhythms and upbeat tempos heighten awareness and stimulate your senses.
I truly believe that the power of music and the effect it has on our lives and our universe is far more profound than many people realize. Today there are many modern medical and scientific professionals that have clinically proven the power of music to inspire, heal and improve many facets of our existence.
How to use this CD: You can simply listen to this disk and enjoy the music. Better yet, go out somewhere in public with a portable music player with headphones on and walk around. You will feel the heightened awareness as you listen to the music and experience your surroundings. The rhythms allow you to see things in a different way.
Another great way to enjoy this CD is to play along. All you need is a pair of sticks (about $10 at any music store) and something to play on. You don't even need an actual drum. You can just use something like a wastebasket or a plastic 5-gallon bucket. Just turn up the CD and play along whatever feels good. There is a magical thing about Drumming. It's a form of meditation and is great for stress relief. Express yourself and have fun!

2. Man To The Moon: â€œWe choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.â€ - JFK 1962

About Vic Sorisio creator of Head Full Of Drums:
Starting from my early childhood, music was a great healer for me. Drumming was the therapeutic outlet for me to release pent up energy, and help me though a lot of the challenges I was going through. Without that outlet I can't imagine what would have happened to my life.
I went on to college and received a degree in music. Since then I've toured extensively performing on a variety of instruments. I perform weekly and keep busy the rest of the time composing, producing and recording at my studio called Quality Music Recording Studio in Vancouver, Washington USA.
