ENTREVISTA CON CANDICE


Mirando los viejos articulos en mi ordenador encontre una entrevista que traduje para la "Hush" hace tiempo que me gustaria compartir. La entrevista esta sacada de un suplemento en Inglaterra. Es corta pero curiosa. Espero os guste.

ENTREVISTA CON CANDICE NIGHT
“Sunday Mirror magazine” – 17 Nov 2002


CANDICE: Conocí a Ritchie a los 18 años. Yo trabajaba para una emisora de radio en Long Island, Nueva York y organizamos un partido de fútbol benéfico entre la emisora y Deep Purple.
Después del partido me acerqué a Ritchie para pedirle un autógrafo, me miro y me dijo que era muy guapa. Ese iba a ser mi momento Ritchie Blackmore pero la cosa no acabó ahí… cuando me iba a ir Ritchie mandó a tres roadies a buscarme para quedar con el en un bar local.
Yo quedé inmediatamente impresionada. Parecía una persona muy misteriosa y profunda y en busca de un buen amigo.
Me estuvo enseñando trucos de magia toda la noche y me cautivó.
El hecho de que tuviera 44 años era totalmente irrelevante para mí.
Conversamos hasta las 9 de la mañana del día siguiente y mis padres se pusieron furiosos cuando llegué a casa.
No dije a ninguno de mis amigos con quien estaba saliendo y cuando finalmente confesé no creo que se pusieran celosos aunque sé que ahora lo están porque nuestra relación es muy buena y duradera.

En nuestra primera cita mi mejor amiga me acompañó a casa de Ritchie en Connecticut ya que no se fiaba de él. No se alejó de mi lado ni un segundo y cuando Ritchie me dijo que me quedara a pasar la noche mi amiga me agarró del brazo y le dijo “Se viene a casa conmigo”.

Seria muy fácil contaros todas las ventajas de vivir con Ritchie como tener una casa grande, las fiestas, los coches, el dinero pero con la casa grande tenemos que pagar más tasas y limpiar más habitaciones y tras las fiestas vienen las resacas…

Nunca tuve problemas con los groupies. Incluso cuando las mujeres han intentado acercarse a Ritchie delante de mis narices siempre me ha protegido y asegurado que no me pusiera celosa. Es increíblemente leal aunque ya sabe que yo no toleraría ningún flirteo…
 
La primera vez que salí de gira con el yo estaba un poco nerviosa por el tema de los groupies. El me prometió que la mayoria de su audiencia en Europa eran hombres pero yo no le creí así que me prepare para la competición y llené mi maleta con minifaldas, cuero y spandex. Desafortunadamente para mí tuvo razón en Italia ya que todos los fans eran hombres y creo que yo me llevé más ovación que Deep Purple aquella noche.

Lo mas duro de salir con una estrella del rock es cuando Ritchie salía de gira sin mi pero me llamaba a menudo y me traía regalos.

Yo adoro la música rock aunque Ritchie casi nunca la escucha en casa y deja la habitación cuando la estoy escuchando. Es comprensible ya que después de 40 años entiendo que quiera desconectar de ella temporalmente.
 
Tanto Ritchie como yo tenemos un fuerte temperamento y no nos gusta reconocer los fallos por eso las discusiones entre nosotros pueden durar días. Incluso tenemos que alquilar diferentes habitaciones cuando vamos de gira si la cosa se calienta.
A Ritchie le gusta quejarse por todo “hace frió”, “hace calor” “la persona de atrás conduce demasiado deprisa” “la de delante demasiado despacio” Por eso prefiero que estemos en habitaciones de hotel separadas así puedo ver lo que quiero en la televisión, escuchar la música que me gusta o simplemente estar en silencio. Ademas así me libro de los ronquidos.

Tampoco dice q vaya a volver, x el "temporalmente" es esperanzador.

No estoy seguro, pero creo que se trata de un Laud, un viejo instrumento medieval antepasado de nuestra actual guitarra acustica.

PS: De paso, pareciera que Candice tiene un gran talento tocando la flauta, con razon Ritchie esta encantado con ella. a/11

 Un laud no es, los laudes son mas pequeños, y fijate q el clavijero (o machine head ( disco mejor q in rock)) esta bastante alejado de la caja de resonancia, con la cual el mastil parece q tiene la longitud del de ua guitarra.

 Aunq seguramente puede q tengas razon, sera un laud electrico.

Re: ENTREVISTA CON CANDICE


Hablando sobre Mike Oldfiled(Tubular Bells):

Many people who have never heard your music, can't imagine it. But if they know Moonlight Shadow of Mike Oldfield, they have a pretty clear picture?
Blackmore: Exactly. We (Ritchie and Candice) absolutly love that song and the music Mike Oldfield made at that time. So you can hear some of that in our music.
Candice: Not only Moonlight Shadow, but also for example Back To France. Our music is just beautiful music which is hard to catagorize, just like Mike Oldfield's music.

Re: ENTREVISTA CON CANDICE


 
Interview by James Jensen
For Acoustic Musician Magazine
 
Ritchie Blackmore...yes the strat wielding, hard rocking riffmiester from the legendary band Deep Purple has just released a primarily acoustic based collection. If you think this means pseudo-acoustic versions of “Smoke On The Water” and “Woman From Tokyo”, check your preconceptions at the door. “Shadow Of The Moon” is a wonderful merging of styles and genres drawing primarily from the 15th century Renaissance period. Blackmore borrows liberally from Renaissance themes for the music. The lyrics skillfully dance between centuries past and present and are the product of Candice Night, who handles the vocals as well.

While purists may stick their noses up in the air at this recording, Blackmore and Night have taken their love of this music and put it into a more contemporary setting which may ultimately introduce many to Renaissance Music who wouldn’t otherwise be inclined to investigate it. This project is also not a typical “one off” but a career path that Blackmore is firmly committed to. A second record is almost completely written and Blackmore advises that it will be a little more energetic, stressing the Gypsy spirit and reflecting a more Russian and German influence. I spoke with Ritchie following tours of Japan and Europe to promote this release and got a couple of comments from Candice as well.
JJ: Other than the intro to “Anya”on a recent Deep Purple CD, and the lead break on “Black Masquerade” with your group Rainbow, you haven’t displayed any leanings toward the acoustic guitar in your career. How did this project develop?

RB: I’ve been interested in Renaissance music for about twenty five years , and I always kept it just as something I listened to until about four years ago. I began playing in that style about that time and Candice would join in humming the tunes so we just took it from there. I felt that her voice would be good for this type of music as it is kind of romantic. A few of my friends suggested that we record the songs we were playing as they sounded so good, and that’s how it got started.

JJ: I have read that you referred to this as a “conglomeration” of styles, is that due to your use, even subtle that it is, of the electric guitar?

RB: That’s right.

JJ: You may upset the purists with the less than exact Renaissance instrumentation , but you might just make the style much more accessible to the mass audience with this approach, was that in your plan?

RB: There was one point when I thought, lets make the traditional record, but my next thought was that we wouldn’t be doing anything that somebody hasn’t already done so we compromised. What we wanted to do was open the door for other people that were not particularly interested in Renaissance music to show them what's out there so that’s why did a bit of both. I really love the traditional approach, but I don’t think I could really do it in the orthodox manner. We started off with “Renaissance Fair” which is an old Renaissance riff I have played for years, and then developed into “Play Minstrel Play” which we didn’t even know the words to. I told Candice that I thought it should be about a flute player much like the Pied Piper of Hamlin.

JJ: You managed to get Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull to play flute on that one?

RB: I am kind of a friend, but more of a fan of his. I have been a fan of his for about twenty odd years, and I think that when he (Jethro Tull) did the “War Child” tour back in ‘74 I was impressed not only by the music but the whole angle of the minstrel look compared to everybody else playing Led Zeppelin. He is so sophisticated and to my thinking one of the only true Genius’ in Rock Music.

JJ: There are some similarities between Renaissance Music and Rock n Roll.

RB: Yes, it’s those parallel kind of fourths and fifths , not unlike the “Smoke On The Water” riff which is in fourths, and some of the harmonic structure is similar. Sometimes if you hear some of the music played for royalty it is very brash and majestic or exciting, like todays Rock show although 500 years ago. Funnily enough I am not drawn towards the Lute , even though most people would think I would be, my interest is in the wind instrument side of things. I love the Trombone.

JJ: I read that you were trying to capture some of the “Gypsy Passion” with this record.

RB: Yes, well that refers to music which to us was also trying to get across a feeling of sitting around a campfire with acoustic guitars and playing songs which would stand up on their own without effects, and a light show or plugging into an amplifier. The Gypsy passion is also an offshoot of people like Django Reinhardt and his fiery style of playing. I often think about how an East German or Hungarian would approach the music which surprises people who think this is Celtic music. I feel this is very far from Celtic, and I don’t relate to Celtic music too much as that is more along the Irish line and we are drawing more from Europe.

JJ: Speaking of Django, you do some pretty nice playing on “Play Minstrel Play” yourself , do you use a pick on those fast runs?

RB: On that part I do yes, although when I am writing I play mostly without a plectrum. Sometimes it is strange making the changeover to the plectrum for performance, because on stage to come across I find that the plectrum is the best way. I also am finding it hard to use a true acoustic guitar on stage. I did actually in the beginning but quickly developed a lot of feedback trouble. When you play on your own it’s okay, but when you play with the band things like drums and keyboards get a little bit loud.

JJ: And they suck away some of your frequencies.

RB: That’s right , and it drives me crazy so I find myself in desperation getting out the plectrum and turning up a little bit . I now have a Fender semi-acoustic which I am using on stage.

JJ: How did you find the song “Ocean Gypsy”? It seems to fit your project perfectly.

RB: That piece came along from Annie Haslam and the group Renaissance. Annie is an old friend who we went to see play up in Connecticut several years ago and she did “Ocean Gypsy” so I went out and bought her CD which contained that song, I believe it was from about 1975. Another inspiration is Michael Oldfield (best known in the US for his Tubular Bells which was used as the theme for the movie The Exorcist) and one of my favorite records of the eighties was his hit “Moonlight Shadow” ( a huge hit in Europe and other parts of the world , but not in America).

JJ: You have a few very tasty instrumentals on this CD, did you ever consider making this record all instrumental?

RB: Not really, I have always found that a bit dull, although I do like people like Leo Kottke.

JJ: You display a nice touch and tone for someone known only as an electric player.

RB: I have been practicing a lot on the acoustic for about four to five years now, but it was a quite strange transition because you can’t just run up and down the fingerboard like you can on the electric. Of course the action and the necks are higher and bigger, and the strings are much wider so everything you play on the acoustic has to count a little bit more. On electric I play a set of eleven to forty six (string gauges) but I don’t play like Jeff Beck who is a very electric style of player, my runs are more orthodox and I don’t bend as many notes. I had been schooled a little bit years ago on Classical Guitar, and it may sound strange but I learned to use all my fingers. A lot of Blues, and Rock guitarists don’t use more than two or three (on the left or fretting hand).

JJ: You seem to have developed a pretty good fingerstyle with your picking hand, do you use flesh and nail?

RB: Actually it is all flesh, and I have been playing fingerstyle hard for the last four years. I recently went to the finger doctor for my left hand because playing the acoustic guitar was much harder , and it is amazing that after playing for so many years that working on the acoustic would bring back the calluses, and the pain (laughing). On the acoustic I have been using the standard D’addario 13’s.

JJ: Your electrics are famous for having scalloped fretboards, have you had the acoustic fretboards worked on?

RB: No, because I only need that scalloped business for bending a note to push it up a tone , and on this type of music I don’t bend any notes.

JJ: What make of guitars are you using on this recording?

RB: Most of the was done on an Alvarez and a Taylor, although we had better luck recording the Alvarez than the Taylor which got a little mettalicy and honky. I now have a Lakewood which is made in Germany and I am very impressed with it. They gave it to me to try when I was on tour there recently and I find myself playing it all the time now. Pat Regan was responsible for recording the guitar and he placed two mics very close to the sound hole.

JJ: The new CD has a track 16 which is a bonus instrumental track for America?

RB: We just recorded that “Possum’s Last Dance” a couple of weeks ago. We thought that since the record had been out for a year overseas we wanted to add something extra. I recorded that with the Taylor and tuned down , although most of the recording features guitars tuned to normal 440 I tend to like tuning my guitars down. I feel that by tuning down a whole step the guitars ring and sustain better and the flexibility of the strings is increased.

JJ: Do you use any alternate tunings?

RB: I haven’t got to the point where I can leave standard tuning. I find the guitar complicated enough without changing the tuning.
