Karima Walker - Waking The Dreaming Body
Waking the Dreaming Body is the follow-up to Tucson artist Karima Walker's acclaimed 2017 album Hands In Our Names. The album includes dense harmonic arrangements of synthesizer, guitar, piano, percussion, field recordings, tape loops and Karima's dulcet singing voice.
The result is a forty-minute dream-narrative that oscillates between the rich textures of her more abstract work and the melody and poetry of her melancholic, Americana-tinged songwriting. The ebb and flow of these two styles recalling the state of half-consciousness between dreaming and waking.
Landscape has always played a huge role in Walker's work, and throughout Waking the Dreaming Body, she evokes the delicacy, grandeur and terrifying enormity of her desert home in the American Southwest, where the album was created. The mountains, rivers and starry skies are referenced throughout her lyrics, grounding the sense of liminal otherworldliness.
