Karima Walker- "Reconstellated" video & new album pre-order 30 Nov 2020
"Reconstellated" is the lead-off track from Karima Walker's forthcoming album, Waking the Dreaming Body, out February 26, 2021 on Keeled Scales / Orindal Records.
Tucson, Arizona interdisciplinary artist Karima Walker walks a line
between two worlds. Aside from her long resume of collaborative work
with artists in the diverse fields of dance, sculpture, film,
photography and creative non-fiction, Walker has long nurtured a duality
within her work as a musician, developing her own sonic language as a
sound designer in tandem with her craft as a singer/songwriter. The
polarity within Walker’s music has never been so articulately explored,
or graced with as much intention, as on her new album,
Waking the Dreaming Body.
GoldFlakePaint premiered Karima Walker's self-directed video for "Reconstellated." Anyone who has been lucky enough to see Walker perform live in recent years will recognize the collage-style psychedelia of her video work, which showcases the gorgeous desert landscapes surrounding Walker's Tucson home. In GoldFlakePaint's premiere of "Reconstellated," GFP's Tom Johnson writes:
Settled on a bed of gentle synths, “Reconstellated” is patient and spellbinding, the song touches upon many of the themes that informed the album overall: sleep, and nature, and the strange ways we fit ourselves inside these things. “ Don’t we move like water too? Don’t we pick up in the night? What does the mountain think of you?” she questions in the song. “Write it down, tell your friends I know where I am, but I can’t tell if I’m a part of it.”
