Listening to the brief interviews of all the various artists both well-known and not-so-well-known, and hearing their thoughts on music and what it means to them, makes for an enlightening film; especially for those involved in musical creativity and for music lovers. The connection of music to living beings is explained in various ways and brings to light more open views on what music can really mean to someone and how music intertwines with life, energy, and emotion. The film also touches on some of the scientific views of music and its interactions with living beings via interviews with those in the field of science.

The DVD special feature of the hour-long full length interview of John Frusciante's perceptions of music adds a great deal to the DVD by allowing the opportunity to hear John's views more in depth. Fans of Frusciante, the former Red Hot Chili Peppers' guitarist, should not miss viewing the special feature.

"The Heart Is a Drum Machine" has the potential to not only inspire and teach those involved in creating music but also those who consider music a part of their daily life.
