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...?

Stormy intro leads into a sweet acoustic melody - wild distorted guitar rides the storm back and forth... Spacey toon indeed amico wink ;)

How very Steam-punk of you big grin :D
pipe organ sounds great with the overdriven guitar, and the acoustic gives it just the right bit of lift.

The entire track flows so well as each melodic musical segment is woven to create something atmospherically interesting. Really great prog-rock intro (reminded me of the band "Renaissance")

Great give and take, both harmonically and in the arrangement. This does indeed sway, and you got a great set of pipes, too!

Emotionally stirring, and a kind of psychedelic/Eastern fusion melody line. Lots of twist and turns and sense of drama as well. I can never second-guess what you are going to come up with, so there's always a surprise in store. Great atmosphere and intriguing blend of instruments.

Cool organ and guitar on the intro Carlo. Morphs into your classic and cool Eastern influenced vibe. I like how the electric guitar solo sits in the track - nice!

Often the most inventive and original music stems from real life experiences. This is definitely something special.
