Biography

In 2008 Casimer Pascal left the tiresome blight of Detroit in search of a living. He gave that city the sweat of his youth and it gave him, as he said, “what it gives most: poverty & an exhausted spirit.” He landed in Chicago leaving behind his previous vehicle, PAS/CAL, letting it become one of Detroit’s many fabulous ruins. Burnt out by the romance of being in a band Casimer confessed, “it kind of pained me to write or dream about music, so I didn’t for the first time in many years.” Then in 2011 his 20 year old nephew, Vincent Casimir, followed suit Amtrakking his way to a room in his uncle’s home. Through a lot of hanging out: intellectually wrestling over Vincent’s fondness for conspiracy theories, watching a lot of Herzog, Hammer Horror, French art house films, and listening to tons and tons of music, the love for writing music quickly came back to Pascal.
Beyond blood, the two found they had much in common. This especially became clear when Vincent asked his uncle to compile a list of must-hear music from every decade from the 60s on. Casimer proudly remembers the experience, “he dug everything I threw at him be it Harry Nilsson or Steve Reich, Eno or Gainsbourg, T. Rex or Neu!, The Associates or the Smiths, Rollerskate Skinny or Spacemen 3, Odd Future or De La Soul, et cetera.” Listening together turned to playing. They began improvising in Casimer’s basement studio space, mostly hour long workouts making noise with guitars, tweaking synths, turning dials on delay pedals, banging drums & drum machines, and soon song-like structures began to emerge.
