DeScianni's music fits into multiple music genres including a 70's Psychedelic Rock, Folk, Easy Listening (now often called Contemporary), POP and a few Country styles. Many of the songs are all new and original from Joe and/or Peter, but many of the songs in the "Dreams in Space and Time" work come from a much larger collection of a lost tapes story of Joe who wrote versions of these songs between 1972 to present. Most of these songs were rearranged/ re-recorded from 2015 to present along with all the new songs. Some of the original recordings from Joe are in the Anthology section on the website.
Dreams in Space and Time has many older and newer songs from Joe and Peter. It is more than just an album. There are over 100 recordings on the DeScianni site both with vocals and instrumentals that is a subset of the whole collection. The work is being added to with new recordings and songs frequently, and some of the current versions are being remastered or done with other artists.
The music presents itself in somewhat of a time warp where much of the music has a 1970s Rock vibe from Black Sabbath to Moody Blues. That decade is simply an arbitrary time bracket, but it did have a sound and reality of its own in a time of peace and love, and musical expression with distinctive sounds like few other generations. Many of those songs were created and publicly performed in the time since in various bands and venues by Joe.
DeScianni was formed from two brothers Joe, (who often goes by Joe-Paul), and Peter. They spent a lot of time as kids being so close in age, often playing football and other sports and going to the same schools. Joe had many artistic expressions in singing, painting, psychedelic art, and music. Peter showed him his first 3 guitar chords, and Joe never put the guitar down again. Joe went on to play in High school Bands and many other bands in and around Atlanta. GA. Joe became extremely proficient as a composer, vocalist with a driving tone, guitarist, songwriter, musician, and also wrote many classical compositions, and was in many bands over the years performing around Atlanta. Peter wrote and produced some songs in this work, rearranged and collaborated with Joe in producing Dreams in Space and Time work in 2015. Peter had strong interests in Guitar, keybds and Music with a very good ear for that genre, but had to pursue college and careers in Medicine, Science, IT, and Automation out of high school. He worked in corporate America for many years and rarely had the time to pursue things he always wanted to do in music and writing, but nonetheless had many talents. Joe and Peter both had experienced incredible hardships together as young brothers, they shared bunk beds for many years and they have a lifelong bond as brothers that survived.
The music on this site may include diferent versions of some songs. Included are many instrumentals, anthology versions, and some Jam sessions, and more are being added often. Some of the work is in the process of being remastered and may replace some of the versions on there. DeScianni had just begun to market this music and one avenue of promotion is song contests. Recently in Sep, 2022 DeScianni was runner up in the John Lennon Song contest Rock category for one Rock song entered (Luck on Monday). DeScianni was also a semifinalist for Lay Me Down in the ISC largest International Song Contest for 2022. Please support the music by buying directly from this site.

It takes a community and funding to create great music or films at many levels today. If someone has a vision, they have to do what it takes to move that vision into reality. This is often an iterative process, if much is ventured in time, funding, and persistence to get the right instruments, vocalists, and genre of sound. Very rarely is the very first version the final best version. DeScianni's songs were performed by DeScianni in various venues from the 70s to today. The base of this rework and new music work was conceived at private DeScianni studios in Alpharetta, GA, and most of the new track recordings and masters were done at StudioPros Music Studios in Los Angeles, CA, and other private studios as far as London, England. There are many studio engineering and session player contributors, the key ones from StudioPros being Craig Durrance for many talents, Danny on Guitars, Amir on keyboards, Uri on Bass, Reggie on Drums, Yosi on Mixing and several other musicians. Vocals are Joe-Paul, Jack, Noah, Filip, Chloe, Alice, and Lena and other vocalists are Stephen, Levi and others.

This 70s era of music has always been one of the most inspirational and many of these songs were created and or inspired at that time when we were young and impressionable from the 70s to 2000s. The young people back had many socail issues on their shoulders but clung together at many music festivals and just like today, each young person had to choose which social circle he would be in. It was a time where "cool", "out of sight" and "far out" were new terms and where you would get a hug from a stranger on the street if he was in the same Hippie social group.
There was a generational disagreement where there was much distrust in the government with the terrible Vietnam war and there were so many deaths of young people you knew both from the war, motorcycle accidents, and more. If the notion that the 60s might be the beginning of the Youth Culture, the 70s slammed it home, and among the older generation then, it was a simple case of the Youth Culture refusing to grow up and take responsibility. In reality they just wanted to have some fun growing up, so not many things have changed, history often repeats itself but now technology has changed so many aspects of human interaction and feelings.
