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...?

Beautiful Carlo. Something a little different from you for me. The acoustic guitar sounds great and is nicely played. The flute patch is haunting. Bravo!

Wow, I like the mystery here, like you are walking right into a fairy-tale, very exiting, in an old forest.

Rainclouds of Memories, very good chosen title. This is just how I like your music the most.

Happy Valentine!

Very nice production for this acoustic gem, Carlo! The guitar is crisp and clear, almost like air after summer rain. I like this piece very much - the melancholy mood and the beautiful chord progressions. Wonderful music!

It has a melancholy vibe going on and that is fine as I sit and drink my coffee on this rainy morning watching the snow melt away. Nice!

The name of the play is in perfect accordance with its musical content. I like this atmosphere of light sadness. Acoustics sound crystal and warm in the same time like a sunbeam that gets its way through the rain. smile :)

This surely has a "doom" sound, but you add a King Crimson-like touch, that gives it a very different twist. I love the vocals, the narrative style is spot on when delivering grim (but unfortunately true) messages like this. You are the master of creating soundscapes that stand out. And always with that signature Carlo D'Anna sound. Really great stuff, Carlo!

Apocalyptic signs are everywhere as mentioned in your lyrics. Nice doom and gloom track. Like the guitar tones used, pertinent lyrical content. Nice mixing and production...great the dark vibe.

Coool song Carlo, great lyrics,

It's strange that we humans only inhabit 5% of the Earths surface but we manage to destroy so much of it in our quest for superiority !
