After two cassette releases for the likes of Tokyo's Solitude Solutions and Barcelona's Angoisse, Motion Ward is happy to present the debut of Kouhei Fukuzumi's Ultrafog project on the vinyl format. "How Those Fires Burned That Are No Longer" weaves through sliding metal timbres, textured air abstractions and wistful mallet sequences. This record, like all of Kouhei's work, is a take on sound as a representation of memory. Light and translucent, each song aims for a temporal snapshot that will inevitably fade into the well of thoughts and experience. 

a dream I see with one eye open

if, about the fire I've witnessed

I could tell you what it illuminated

the place where you even lose your final

shade of darkness

may it at least be golden

may it at least be grand

Kouhei Fukuzumi
