    Music in the Darkroom?

    Do you listen to music in the darkroom or do you like the silence. I like silence when I am loading film into a tank or into the holders but while processing and printing I love music. I have just bought another record player so I'll now have one for the darkroom. That will really be a treat!

    Ah yes....the gentle hum of the ventilation system, the gurgling of the water, and MUSIC! I am in another world and loving it. I do NOT have a phone in the darkroom - the voice mail can take it.

    I always have music on in the darkroom. It adds a lot to the darkroom experience!

    What is it about our breed, darkrooms rather then Digital, Vinyl rather then Cd..

    I love it

    Long time since I had a permanent darkroom ( working on it right now ) but I do like a bit of music.

    I marked neither of the boxes. It all depends on my mood, and what time of the day(sometimes I print at 4 or 5 in the AM) so I dont disturb the rest of the family. When I do listen, its usually Deep Tracks on Sirius sat. radio.

    I like to listen to music when I'm in the darkroom, most of the time anyway.

    I would actually like to put a phone in my darkroom. A rotary phone on the wall would be fun, I think. Other than that no phone. I'd probably turn the ringer off and use it just to send calls out.

    I listen to the radio regardless of printing or developing film. Deathly quiet just doesn't cut it for me.
    Firestarter - maybe I'll try and fit an 8-Track player to match my old turntable and casette deck that lives in the house?

    I do not listen to music when I am doing any kind of work. It's not that I don't like music, I love it, and it overwhelms me completely.

    when I get the chance to get back in the darkroom(at school, can't print at home ), it will be with an ipod blasting some mc hammer, Led Zeppelin, and some beach boys!

    nice thing too, the lab techs run the internet radio ALLLLLLLLL day long!
