About The Poster: Conventum is one of those typical Quebecois projects to have begun during the second half of the 70s. Conventum was slow to start out, but saw its first album on the ultra small (and now ultra collectible) label Le Tamanoir. At the time, Conventum was developing a progressive music 'sound', fusing chamber music and rock. Their music was highly theatrical, acoustic, and satirical, and in many ways - if not really avant-garde - sufficiently groundbreaking. During this period, 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 neutral and easily understood), but can be easily enjoyed by most adventurous progheads, as the music is often breathtaking. Both albums are much recommended to any progheads into chamber “rock” music, the way only Quebecois, the Finns and Belgians can do it. This poster was in the private collection of a noted jazz musician and producer.
