Carlos Casas is a filmmaker, visual artist and musician whose work is a cross between documentary film, cinema, and contemporary visual and sound arts. He will be joined by David Toop for a special presentation of his last album for Discrepant, Pyramid of Skulls.
Inspired by the common task (Fedorov) and the people of Pamir in Tajikistan, Pyramid of Skulls deconstructs far away sights and sounds to create a unique field recording experiment that equally worships past, present and future traditions. Nikolai Fedorov thought the Pamir to be the cradle of humanity, the hidden and forgotten nest, a Pyramid of skulls that holded the secrets of past human kinship. He believed that most Asian myths of human origin pointed the Pamir region as their inception. For the Chinese, Indian and Semitic myth, this mountainous region of Central Asia, often referred to as 'the roof of the world' was the key to understand and start his resurrection plan.
