description
Welcome to the music of Carlo D'Anna's Ridiculous Dream music. Also known as "Dream Warrior" in some circles. Influences and music styles ranging from basic to progressive rock, with definite Retro seventies sound. If you enjoy the sound of Moody Blues, George Harrison, Genesis, Dead Can Dance, and others of the same style, more or less, you will probably like this music. I use quite a bit of Mellotron and acoustic fingerstyle guitar as well.
Why this name?
.
My Soundclick angle "Ridiculous Dream"?
Isn't life one?
Do you play live?
I have played mainly as a street musician and in Folk life fairs in the town of Santa Cruz, Calif. and in a few gigs with others. I have formed a small group of like-minded fools to play in my area as well.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It opens up a whole pandemonium of sounds which is neither negative, nor positive. It just lays it straight on the table, like a combo pizza!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Sure, for a six figures deal! Why the hell not?
Or even two figures...
...or even ten cents?
...spare change?
Your influences?
I listen to alot of 70's Prog-Rock and obscure European RIO (Rock in Opposition), and World.
My Favs are early Genesis, Danny Kirwan of early Fleetwood Mac, Anthony Phillips, Robert Wyatt, Steve Hackett, King Crimson, Leo Kotke, John Fahey, Spirit, and Quicksilver Messenger Service. Michael Hedges, some jazz and classical. And let us not forget the great Ren and Stimpy. My own interest is Fingerstyle Guitar and Rhythm Guitar.
Favorite spot?
Big Sur, Santa Cruz, Monterey and Carmel California. Olympic Rain Forest.
Equipment used:
Six string Ovation Guitar, 12 string acoustic/electric Takamine dread. Gibson electric semi-hollow body guitar, Martin Dreadnaught 6 string guitar, Asian Bamboo flute, tabla and tamborine. I also now use M-tron, Sampletron, IK Multimedia Fender.
I record using Protools 8.01. Xpand, BFD Drums
Anything else...?

A wonderful piece, with lots of medieval references. There are many sweet themes and nice little tunes going on here. I also love the percussive sounds. The different pieces interact and blend nicely and as always the production is top notch. You opened a door to a strange and magic place of wonderful, timeless prog sounds, Carlo!

A rich arrangement hosting many wondrous synthesized toys beautifully produced. The disconnected vocals did it for me. AWESOME. Totally befitting the evening's theme.

A 'wide-screen' epic of mind-travel into unknown territories; both in this universe and in others. A kind of travelling without moving. Lots of interesting changes. I can imagine a very involved light-show to go with this. Yep, Carlo, you've produced a very special one here. Excellently presented piece of pracical dreaming.

Quality to the core, simply mesmerizing! The wonderful, rich, seemingly timeless organ intro, the ultra-cool cat scat vocal passage, the rock solid bass steers this mama along throughout, and the coda comes across with an almost medieval vibe, the whole track really. Strange? Check. Signature? Well I can certainly tell it's yours. Amazing? Hell yes!!!

This is great and captures the theme from the graphics to the synths and GR unit and that vocal is wild. Very cool.

The open airy mellotron, the mean mode of the guitar lines, the grove of the percussion and bass, it all is otherworldly. Those vocals though, that's what takes this from trippy fun to awesome for me. A very cool three-part mini-suite indeed.
