About The Poster: Conventum is one of those typical Quebecois projects to have begun during the second half of the 70s. Conventum saw its first album on the ultra small (and now ultra collectible) label Le Tamanoir. At the time, Conventum was developing a progressive 'sound' crossing chamber music and rock. Their music was also highly theatrical, acoustic and satirical, and in many ways - if not really avant-garde - sufficiently groundbreaking, while also retaining a traditional folk music sound. Around that time, they recorded a concert in their studio. Conventum is best appreciated with a good mastering of the French language (their French singing is actually quite easily understood), but can be easily enjoyed by most adventurous progheads, as the music is often breathtaking. Both albums are highly recommended to any progheads into chamber “rock” music, the way only the Quebecois, the Finns and the Belgians can do it. This poster was in the private collection of a noted jazz musician and producer. Poster measures 24 x 17.5 inches.
