Wet Roses

Wet Roses is a production studio for music, photos and movies, which began to record and publish original songs, mainly written by Keiichi Fukuoka, since 2017. The lyrics are concerned with today's Japanese women's inner emotional turmoil. The narrative within, it is aimed to empower every woman in the quest of fulfillment. The Electropop songs become a tool to release, express and embody the hidden true feelings of sorrow and pleasure, out of social concerns. In 1993, Fukuoka started performing his songs accompanying his voice either with the piano or the guitar at live shows in Tokyo. Fukuoka's original model guitars "ESP Cross Angel" and "ESP Requiem" were created by ESP in 1999 and 2009 respectively. Since then, the guitars have been exhibited several times at the Musical Instruments Fair in Tokyo, at the NAMM Show in LA and at MusicMesse in Frankfurt. The media took interest in these two uniquely shaped guitars making favorable remarks about the ESP brand and Fukuoka's design. Now, Keiichi Fukuoka is active as event planner and producer. The vocals are performed by Kumiko Mouri, who is also a song writer and a composer. Since 1989, Mouri's original compositions, along with vocal sessions for other authors, have been released on 16 CDs with 6 major labels and 3 independent ones such as Polydor Records, Vap inc., MCA Victor, Universal Victor, Sony Records, Teichiku Records, Vivid Sounds and others. Sound Design and Graphic Design are done by Mauro Arrighi. Arrighi is an Italian music producer, graphic designer and video maker now based in Japan. Arrighi has been active in the Academia lecturing Media Art at various universities in Italy, Japan, UK, and US. His focus is on contemporary Japanese artists and their relationship with animism. In 2011, Arrighi has published a book about the influence of Shinto on Media Art entitled "Japanese Spell in Electronic Art". Arrighi's music is on sale on iTunes Store.

"The two of us"

Music & Lyrics: Keiichi Fukuoka
Sound design: Mauro Arrighi & Kumiko Mouri
Translation: Kumiko Mouri & Mauro Arrighi

The wind brings the salty scent of the sea;
I can hear the delighted voices of fairies.

The sun of the summer shines on the white terrace;
when I turned around, I found you there.

The angels laced the red thread of our fate,
I long to touch your hands, to weave you with this invisible line.

We have been repeating empty rituals wearing a mask,
but now: goodbye to such a meaningless past.

Even for a moment,
I want to paint the beatings of our hearts in your mind.


Your finger traces shapes on my skin like a feather,
it makes my heartbeats run faster; waves rush through my body.

We lose ourselves and become One, in a vortex of fleeting time.

The angels laced the red thread of our fate;
I want the two of us to make it sure more.

It is not bound just by the marriage ring;
I want to feel the present with you.

Ephemeral passionate dreams...
I want to dedicate them to your heart.

We have been repeating empty rituals wearing a mask,
but now: goodbye to such a meaningless past.

The future, as a wishful promise,
I want to dedicate it to your heart.

"Flowers glittered by tears"

Lyrics: Kumiko Mouri
Music: Keiichi Fukuoka
Sound design: Mauro Arrighi


Even if we're apart or hidden from each other,
our layered memories remain...

Those are keep blooming in my heart as...
Flowers glittered by tears.

How much time has passed by?
...and: how much have you forgotten?

... but still: why is your gaze so sweet?
even after I gave up everything...

So, only this moment, only in my sleeping dream
Let run your fingers through my hair.

Then, I hug you...
feeling the summer's sky or the winters
in your eyes, deep inside.

In the morning, to see off
the wild mirage of holding each other.

Don't worry: I never do that other than in my dreams.
In public: I can just smile as your friend.

A new love would flourish in my life someday.
I know: it would be towards a new hope.

So, only at this moment, only in my sleeping dreams:
I can't help but allowing myself to cry for your arms.

Then, I hug you...
feeling the summer's sky or the winters
in your eyes, deep inside.

In the morning, to see off
the wild mirage of holding each other.

Even if we're apart or hidden from each other,
our layered memories remain...

Those are keep blooming in my heart as...
Flowers glittered by tears.

Be Eternal...
