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...?

There is a mysterious and mystical feeling about this track. I like the way you have captured the sense of a river flowing with the music - superb arrangement! Love the blend of tones and textures.

Yeah, this is a little unique. Cool backing synth and flute flowing in and out. The guitar adds to the uniqueness to a track that is meditative and a slight departure from what I'd call your signature Eastern influenced vibe - cool!

Drape against a cool ambient percussion vibe your guitar melody riffs truly stand out for me in this piece. Imaginative and creative work Carlo. I really like the feel of this track.

This is really up my alley! I love the overall mystical tone and the ostinato synth theme in the back. The stereo effects on the guitar add to the sense of mystery and the flute has this celtic tone of mountains and misty meadows. Wonderful piece, Carlo.

I like this soundscape of tone and the dynamics are great. The river Charles does run swiftly at night, but you knew that. Cool song!

This has got a real earthly mysterious feel to it. The percussion and ambient instruments give it a feel like it is in motion and the guitar on top rounds everything off nicely! Nice track!

Listening to this I immediately recognize you, Carlo. The turns you are taking are really amazing and like I still wonder how you get this specific sound. Because of that sound it's like this music is ancient, out of the Middle Ages, for me.

Always surprising. Nice!

Your fantasy world seems to be endlessly in this one. Listening feels like going to an unknown place where all kinds of things are happening. The mood and the feeling it is giving is very positive. No bad things happening.

Makes me think of the fantasy world of children where really everything could happen.

I like that groove you have put in here very much. So very cool and different from your usual style.

A kind of chaos as well, coming in when I'm listening further.

A very special Halloween mood! Nice one!
