One of our favorite places to visit in NYC, an artist enclave filled with music and paint now razed -gone- we thought we'd put Jennifer's photographs of this great urban art into a collage fit for printing BIG.

This demo is 560 pixels wide by 618 pixels long, not so good for a large print.

The download we have available is super high resolution, suitable for large prints from 24"x36" & up. 5points_musicposter-560px-x-618h_618

If you'd like a copy to print for yourself,  write to rp at ropaq dot com and ask me for one!  : P

Clinton Dekert says: "One usually tries to cross-reference, categorize, define, describe, label, and pigeonhole music or art/culture into convenient boxes in effort to compare to something else relevant. It's human nature, but these are "Songs for Machines", so all bets are off. Although I am a mere mortal and not a machine, I will attempt to put it in human context.

The thing about the music of Roland Paquette is that it some how it seems to defy any attempt to do so... but I dare say subtle influences seem to range from; Queens of the Stone Age to Jethro Tull, or from King Crimson to Foo Fighters, depending how you look at it, or should I say, depending how you hear it. Even so, the music stands on it's own and only pays homage from a distance to such influences.

This body of work is well balanced, and powerfully dynamic. The songs range from crunching guitar to beautiful melody lines. The songs seem to get better with each listening. It is like a great stew with so many different spices and flavors that it's hard to identify the ingredients and yet it all works together with pleasingly tastey results. Well-seasoned home-style stew!... Or is it stone soup. Either way there is plenty of Rock in it." continue reading...

"So you want to become gods?" Yasper shook his head. "That would be heresy," he clucked his tongue at her, a grin stretching his mouth. "No, we seek to understand who we truly are, and what our true purpose is. If we can comprehend how the world was made, and learn the power of transmutation—the art of changing one thing into another—could we not give ourselves that same gift?" "Which gift?" "Transmutation." "Trans—what?" "Becoming something new." Cnán scratched her nose. "What's wrong with what we are?" Yasper closed one eye and stared critically at her. "What's right about what we are?" he asked.

SONGS FOR MACHINES - Roland Paquette

by Keith LeBlanc  3.20.2011

Some of the most BO-da-cious hard edged cavernous chip driven sounds I have heard.  It Hit me the same as Nine Inch Nails the first time I heard it.  Much Respect.
