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...?

I like those warm acoustic sounds here very much. Kind of Celtic, kind of History, mystery. This is really your fantasy world and the only thing we need while listening in this cold winter is a big fire to sit around.

And I like the percussions and the flute very much too. Everything seems to be so authentic and bringing such a quiet atmosphere.

Nice one, Carlo!

Every time I hear this I catch a little more of the nuance and skill that went into it. I hope to grok it all eventually, even if it take 100 years wink ;)

What wonderful sounds! This is so well produced and has such a sweet sound to it. There is a medieval touch to it, but also a bit of flamenco. The guitars sound amazing and the distorted guitar on top has just the right touch. The jazzy chord that you introduce, makes the song stand out and you keep thinking - where is it going now? The fast percussion at the end and the never ending twist and turns makes this piece unique. The running water at the end, makes you think that the music never stops, it just floated by and let you catch a bit of it' s magic. Absolutely great stuff, Carlo!

It is remarkable to think how the world has changed in 100 years, and the few who have lived the long life to see this history. Sweet acoustic feel in this Carlo - love the bongos! Cheers to another 100 years...
