Seriously, what the fuck with the candles? Where does this candle impulse come from, and in what other profession does it get expressed?


Yoga / Recording studio...

I really don't spend much time on forums but this one hits home You see I've been saving up some money to purchase a 1000 sq Ft. Commercial condo, to turn my small part time project studio (located in my transmission shop) into a more permanant place.  It's a bitch having to move tool boxes around to record bands and put everything back in place so I can build transmissions the next morning.

Anyway, my wife is quite a busy yoga instructor. The other day she asked me if the live room could also be used for her yoga sessions and would I make sure that I can have sconces on the walls to hold "lead free" candles..

What's with the candle haters?  I love the vibe candles bring to the studio.

You all can't really be underplaying the value of creating an environment that the artist feels comfortable and creative in to get the best performance?

Seriously, what the fuck with the candles? If you go to the dentist or the barber or any other trained professional, and he has to interrupt his work to tend to the candles, or if he has a candle steward doing it for him, you'd be pretty freaked out. Where does this candle impulse come from, and in what other profession does it get expressed?


I'm usually a lurker but I thought I'd chime in on a bit of a serious not (if I may).  I suppose some folks do it for the 'mood'.  Personally, I like natural light.  Bright lights tend to be murder on my eyes and I find the candles do best for lighting my cave and keeping me from getting a headache.  Yep.  I like very little light and the curtains closed.  The wife called me a hermit when we first met. Soon we'll have a house and I get to have a whole section of it to myself so that I can return to my cave.

I'd be more freaked out if I went to the dentist and he had to interrupt his work to change a reel of 2 inch.

we recorded the Nelson Twins in the 90's and they spent $5k on candles for about a month. every flat surface was lit and held a candle. truly amazing vibe. looked like a music video. a bitch to clean off the floor for months and years. there's problably still some in the corner the new tenants wonder about.

also, they put up these posters of the "budweiser" girls in bathing suits and on motorcycles and at first I was creeped out. I thought they were a little old for that......until the models from the posters came to hang out!

I'm not really big on candles myself... since this was started with a candle:

trev almost dies....

Made for an eventful night.. closest I've ever come to having my life flash before me. I was amazed by the number of calls to me the following day (when it ran on the news) how many people in the Chicago music community watch the news!

candle light is a much warmer and more musical light than that emitted from electric bulbs.  *)
