Berkdrums What a great collaboration! This is such a well-balanced, peaceful album. Amazing dreamy tracks, for calmness and inspiration. My only complaint is that I want more…!

The first in our series of four David Cordero releases between 2023 and 2024 is a wonderful collaboration between himself and the great Japanese ambient composer, Rhucle. 'Summer Chronicles' marks the first collaboration between the pair, and the first release with Rhucle on Home Normal.

'This album was created to reflect our memories of the summer of 2022. During several weeks we exchanged some sketches and over a number of edits and adjustments we were able to evolve the gentle sounds reflective of nature in that period that encompassed our vision for the organic work we were able to create together.

'Summer Chronicles' was titled by David as that summer he was playing the videogame 'Xenoblade Chronicles'. We felt the title brought together the sounds and textures of the album in its theme and focus perfectly.

The cover photo was taken by Rhucle in a nature park in Japan.

We hope you like this collection of songs.'

Thank you for listening.
