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...?

This is super groooovy! it exudes a very West Coast vibe. The deep reverb on the guitar is great. I can almost see the lava lamps and psychedelic light show projections. I has a 'garageband kind of sound. A real 'Nugget' of a song. Like everyone else has already said...yes, I can hear shades of The Doors in this, but it has your own unique and recognisable sound too. Your voice is so perfect for this strange and compelling song. The whooshes that fly across the speakers are a really nice touch. Timothy Leary is taking me on a trip around the Bay! Nice smile :)

Absolutely brilliant, Carlo! I knew this was going to be right up your alley, so I wondered why you were not represented on the psychedelic challenge player. But anyway, here it is and you got everything right. You are a master of this late 60's/early 70's sound and the lyrics are perfect for this genre. And all in all it's just a bloody good song. Makes me think of early PF and The Doors. Great work, Carlo!

I thought I would check out your entry since the psychedelic theme is right down your alley. Nicely done and like Kath says it does have a doors vibe to it. Music & lyrics defiantly have the 60's feel and everything is well performed and delivered!

Doors and more, for sure. Nice guitar riff drives this along, with enough 'experimental' musical moves to send you straight back to the sixties.

I knew you'd nail this Challenge! This is awesome! The lyrics, melody, effects and arrangement are all straight out of the 60's psychedelic scene - what a great vibe!! Very impressive track.

Wonderful vintage sounds, (do I detect?) the hint of a spaghetti western-like vibe, nailed the trippy, (lyrical) obscure free thought of psychedelic mind expansion! Nicely produced, beautiful signature vox, amazing track!

Yep. What a blast. You captured the 60's style of the psychedelic years. Have to agree with others, your vocals reminded me of Jim Morrison. Great track so befitting of a wonderful retro theme you came up with. Well done Carlo.
