PhilPDX50 I picked the current track I'm listening to as my favorite... I probably could've done that with any of them. This music is so subtle and relaxing... more of a background sound collage at times than music, but no less captivating. Favorite track: Evening market of the petal fields > part 2.

Krylda Sometimes in life you just need to sit down and relax to an album that gently soothes and caresses your soul – especially after a busy or challenging day. This album is a gentle and flowing melodic ride through a series of natural soundscapes that will calm you, reinvigorate you, and send you on a sonic journey that gently glistens and flows around you. This sonic soundscape is unrushed and will reveal its many treasures as you ride though its tracks. Favorite track: Lhasa River circles the fading sunset > part 1.

myabi I love everything about this album, and will need to check more jarguna in the future. I particularly love the birds on the first track and the ambient nature. Exactly what I needed for work.

rikm A warm and beautiful example of organic ambience, "Sunwashed Evening Fire" is an aural delight from start to finish, bringing to mind David Sylvian's early instrumental work and the sonic explorations of Steve Roach.

A truly impressive collaboration from Rosenthal and Jarguna...

Scott this is really nice from start to finish; conjures up a wealth of memories and emotions. the comparison to "terrace of memories", sam's collab with vidnaObmana, is apt but this release is perhaps a bit lighter/less dense. it's so very very relaxing... Favorite track: Lhasa River circles the fading sunset > part 2.

Sam Rosenthal (USA) and Jarguna (Italy) merge with the sunset on their first electronic/ambient collaboration, a work that lingers in the ephemeral dusk of dreams. SUNWASHED EVENING FIRE’s two tracks (in seven movements) are an evocative blend of drones and synths coloring the margins without overwhelming the music’s essential fragility. Building in muted opulence, the pieces possess a hypnotic allure attuned to frequencies of nature as equally as they are to those of the pulsing electronics. Sensitive sonic montages lead listeners quietly into the twilight where the sustaining ambient moods eventually resolve to rise up again as in “Evening market of the petal fields > part 3” where Erik Wollo’s Kosmische electric guitar rides atop Jarguna’s analog sequencer patterns.

Projekt founder Rosenthal has created over 20 albums, Jarguna over 30. They collaborated by sending files back and forth across the evening sky with Rosenthal helming the audio editing, mapping and processing to create the album’s final flow.

“I think about when you are in a plane,” jarguna muses, “and in the sunset time you chase the sun falling over the horizon. The sunset seems to never end, time standing still in a layer of colors immersing me in the shades of blue, yellow and cobalt red…”

This duo understands better than most that sound is temporal and needs time to be fully considered; it is only at twilight where we notice and hear the hidden order of life. Existing in the liminal space between day or night, dawn or dusk, wakefulness or sleep, SUNWASHED EVENING FIRE’s mysteriously fleeting sections form a fitting accompaniment for the solitude of these internal states.
