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...?

Listening to these sounds my fantasy starts to work and I'm going for a trip to a place, very far away. This music has got something of a hovering bird, flying high in the sky above huge landscapes, far away from human influences.

Wow! Nice one, Carlo!

Love the vibe in your songs. Great lyrics and imagery. I like the way something that seems very simple on the surface has hidden depths. Superb melody, it has a hint of mysticism.

For me, the music represents cascading water, very melodic and visual. Lovin' the arrangement and the way it floats from one scene to the next. I hear a fusion of psychedelic and prog rock in this. Awesome work.

That bell is fantastic, somewhere between a gamelan and a wind chime - otherworldly. And then it get's all retro shopping time with the trumpets, only to come back. The guitar at the end section was the perfect addition to finish it off without overdoing it.

An exhilarating adventure sports soundtrack, which then seamlessly expands to transcend the beauty and introspection of time spent in nature, and then back for a double dose of high energy, excellence!

I really like the adventurous intro and how it transitions into a melodramatic dreamlike state only to morph back to the liveliness of an outdoor expedition.Nice changeovers. Love the choir. tight mix...enjoyed the excursion.

A frantic start to this adventure followed by a cool ride. Hints of danger midway, and then bam, we're back to that great opening theme. Great sounds and emotional performances, Carlo. What a rush!
