"peaced-out home-made new age from Seattle David Casper seems to be the sole artist on Hummingbird Records, with six releases from 81-86. performed with synthesizers, cheng, sitar, glass harmonica and a variety of flutes, the tracks drone and meander through melodies at once native to seattle, and to the east. patient and wandering songs, excellent slow music multi-tracked high atop a lush mountain by the sea." left coast tapes
