David Casper - Tantra-La (LP)
Another PINA home-run for David Casper, Tantra La from 1982 is the precursor to Crystal Waves. Here Casper perfects his new-age palette (flute, wind chimes, cello, h’siao, glass harmonica, kalimba, sheng, sitar & ocharina) and starts playing with echo and tape speed, blurring the instruments, making the sounds shimmer and fold over each other. The cover collage is a perfect visual gateway into Casper’s blissed universe.
