description
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...?

Really great rhythmic latin feel to this one. As with all your music, it has a captivating atmosphere and vivid visuals. Love the change around 2:00. I hear a fascinating blend of styles and influences in this track - excellent collaboration!

Lovely instrumental piece with some very nice guitar work. Your take on tunes and chord changes is really your own, Carlo. Always surprises me, that you can do what you do and get away with it. But you do and that is part of your fantastic sound. Much to be learned there smile :)

Wonderful song, Carlo. It may be one of your oldies, but it sure has that Carlo sound, that you have refined and fine tuned to become your trademark. A very nice song with nice effects and that very special short reverb that you use so often. Makes it sound like I am with you in the room where you are playing. It adds a "live" feeling to your sound.

A very nice rythm base, the acoustic guitar is outstanding using some cool chords ( partially spanish colored touch ), sweet natural sounding flute, a sweet fall back in the 70´s style imho. Great one! smile :)

Had to check the writer...for a while I was convinced it was a long lost Pink Floyd number! This would have sounded perfect on one of their albums. Fantastic vibe, great songwriting and superb arrangement. It has that something special about it, magical!
