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 think we have one of the greatest single threats to extinction sitting in the white house . People forget why the epa was created and what happened at love canal. When the stupid rule we end up teetering on doom. This song certainly captures the doom theme.

Heard about this camel, Maybe her humps were enhanced as well? Anyway she wasnt talking but her lips gave her away. Too bad she could have been a contenda. Excellent music to the theme Carlo.

Brilliant title, and a track that works perfectly with it, a great blend of authenticity and comedy. A cool fusion of sounds to create something uniquely Carlo.

So much effective musical decoration on this Arabic tinted track. A lot of musical elements that you have superbly woven together to creative something fantastic for the evening's theme.

THis is so cool....this has such a vibe........love the Arabian flute vibe yes this truly takes me into the desert regions...complete with concubine botox camels.. yes indeed......I had said Sophia was a winner..but this little girl she got some hip moves......THis is grand on many levels.......love the strings.......Did you know that all this time I thought I was Italian but according to Ancestory I am more Persian jew on my Dads side..which I grew up thinking his side was Siciliano..and mama Calabrese........but Dad was a Persian jew... and according to Ancestory we came from a long line of hide tanners.......who knew...but it explains a lot about myself and my creativity........BLessings, Kath

Yes, camels and botox are not a right combination. And listening to this track, I guess that camel is not very happy.

Everything is kind of loose in this track, like the timing of everything is not exactly in time. In my mind there is coming a very very hot desert, with the sun burning right above your head. And then I understand this track.

Very original and really Carlo style!

Amazingly great Arabic favor throughout. The choice of instruments used is spot on. A constantly changing landscrape. Nice track Carlo!

If there was a stoned camel definition I truly think this song would be playing with it. Lots going on here!

Lol...you just have to love a troublemaker! My vote is for this botox camel. Love the music Carlo...very Arabic and beautifully crafted - it really does have a fantastic Arabian vibe and a lot of atmosphere. I can imagine this camel walking out into the desert (with a slight wiggle and a bit of a giggle) but glancing back occasionally to attract the male admirers, lol.
