Conventum was a Québécois band from Montréal. "Le pays du bruit" is a bonus live track from their second album, Le bureau central des utopies, which originally was on an LP on a Montréal label, Les Disques Cadence in 1979, but "Le pays du bruit" didn't come out until a 1996 CD reissue from another even smaller Montréal label, Les Disques Kozak.

That wasn't wholly unpleasant, but it wasn't especially musical either.

Are they more like the French Todd Rundgren or the French Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band?

I don't know; sometimes they're funny, like this. Mostly they're more musical. They're described as progressive folk (or avant-folk), but mostly they're Rock in Opposition, which is not a style exactly but sort of a movement.
