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...?

Magic again. Very fairy-tale like and the acoustic guitar is bringing so much warmth.

Twists and turns on the right moment, calming effects. I hear Celtic influences as well.

Nice one!

Something special.
Kind of mixture of Carlo's signature sound full of adventures and the more modern electronica adds of Howard Treesound.

Fascinating in all aspects, facing a mysterious world. Very useful for a film.

Enjoyed it very much.

I must have missed this one during the years. Very nice cooperation.

Think I like the moment of 2:00 the most, when the violin is coming in (bridge). And that solo guitar coming in at 3:30 (another bridge).

Very professional made, enjoyed it very much.

Nice surreal melody with a clear crisp acoustic guitar. The fx and synth add give a great body to this fine tune. This is a good listen

Sounds great Carlo, has a Tubular Bells vibe. Love the guitar transition at 2:46. The french horn gives it an interesting vibe - cool and creative music.

This one is really in the style I like so much from you. There is so much magic, mystery, a dream world, drama, hope and listening is like making a very exiting trip (in nature).

And then there are Celtic influences and a ancient feeling like we are in the middle ages.

And I love the mellotron.

Hope I didn't forget a thing.
Enjoyed it!

I love stuff like this...so out of the box and creative. Wonderful tones (the new GR-55 I suspect) and mystical. Good imagery generator and definitely prime soundtrack material. A Carlo magic carpet ride!

Lots of twists and turns and a wonderful soundscape that I could envision as a soundtrack for a foreign film at Cannes.

Loved the 180 turns and twists this composition makes as it meanders it's way through the consciousness.
Organic and sparkly smile :)
the GR-55 sounds VERY cool!!!
