The Scorpions


An interesting anecdote about the band Scorpions is related to their famous rock ballad “Wind of Change”. The song was written in 1990, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and was inspired by the historical events taking place in Eastern Europe at the time. Scorpions singer Klaus Meine said the song was born after the band toured the USSR in 1989, where they played to thousands of enthusiastic fans. He was struck by the passion and energy of the crowd, as well as the political and social changes that were taking place in the region.

However, an interesting anecdote about the song is that the melody and lyrics were written by Klaus Meine, while he was taking a bath in a hotel room in Moscow. He then called his producer to sing the song over the phone, and the producer immediately recognised its potential and helped make it a worldwide hit. “Wind of Change” became one of the Scorpions’ most iconic songs, and was seen as an ode to freedom and hope around the world. It remains one of the band’s most beloved and popular songs today.

Longevity of carbon pigment inks
Tests carried out in the USA, in the Wilhem research center, guarantee a longevity of 150 years if these inks are associated with acid-free papers, with the Hahnemühle or Canson paper ranges we work with.
On a more technical aspect, the carbon inks are encapsulated: it is coal dust mixed with a binder which allows to deposit it on the paper. No difference in density between the printer output and after drying. There is a slight evaporation of the binder which stabilizes the pigment on the coating. It remains then the coal dust, which will give the density and nuance of the black and white impression.
The inks are made from pure monochromatic pigments chosen for their resistance to light, available in seven progressive shades, from light gray to black. They are specially designed to reflect light back to the viewer’s eye and completely eliminate color anomalies such as metamerism (which changes color depending on the light source). The Piezography System, monochrome inks, provides a unique photographic look that includes depth and brilliance throughout the image surface.
The formula allows for a longevity that reaches record levels when printing on archival and fine art papers. The print quality is at least equal to the best silver baryta print, if not better.
