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...?

Somehow I hear the 60's in this track. Is it your way of playing, the moods you bring? You can never explain what it exactly is what makes it 60's, and that's so fascinating.

There is something very relaxed in here. Very enjoyable!

Wow, such warm acoustic sounds you are bringing here, in a natural and relaxed way. It sounds like you are improvising on the moment itself.

A nice way to bring your older work into our attention.
Enjoyed it!

Great music for simply floating away. Textures and shades and nuance combine into an instant vacation.

I agree with Rodz - this is trippy. The melody rings a bell but I can't put my finger on it. A cool 60's tribute.

This has a calm and chilled out vibe, quite trippy too. Reminds me of a time when life seemed more laid back and less chaotic. Great guitar work and I like the spacey vocals. Very hypnotic.

Your vocal performance has that special spark that makes it stand out. Terrific acoustic work. Creative change at the 3:24 mark. Really enjoyed listening.

Nice clean acoustic intro and great songwriting here. It kind of reminds me of the John Lennon 'Revolver' era writing but you've added your own signature sounds as well. Nice!

like mike, i thought it would play off the beatle song, she's leaving home. as always you march to your own beat whether it be 3/4 time or any other. imaginative with a blend of most unusual sounds. i heard a guy play a saw once and one of the sounds here reminds me of that. in any case, great work and a fine listen for me.
