Go Seigen vs. Fujisawa Kuranosuke is a sprawling 30 minute work based on patterns from a 1953 championship game of go, the ancient Japanese board game. This release captures a glimpse of the larger work, in the form of "Go Part 3C." The single distills cinematic and classical influences into a patient post-rock-esque build, driven by drums and interweaving strings.
