Biography

Xeltrei hails from Sweden and consists of Erica on piano and David Wenngren (of Library Tapes) on piano, field recordings, and computer. Their album is made up of ten tracks of delicate, muffled piano melodies mixed with an array of crumbling sounds. Xeltrei explains their collaboration as “lo-fi piano music made with love.” The music sounds almost like a forgotten, homemade cassette where each melancholy note on the piano is allowed to resonate before it fades. Piano is only half of the story, of course. The various found sounds and effects, add to the atmosphere. These manipulations enhance the feeling that this is a lo-fi recording affected by incidental noise. The real success of Litotes is that it draws the listener into this simulated space with its sonic quirks. Xeltrei has succeeded in creating an essential piece of mood music that is both achingly beautiful and timeless.
