"Emptyset are one of the most innovative acts currently working in the techno domain." - FACT
"Using effects, processors and old buildings as resonance chambers, Emptyset's stripped-down electronic music plays tricks with space and time." - The Quietus
"Emptyset's Signal succeeds in maintaining the authenticity of the original performance, while exploring the shape and movement of the sounds emerging from the ionosphere through their studio recording process." - The Creators Project
Thrill Jockey is extremely pleased to announce the signing of Emptyset!
Emptyset is a London/Berlin based production project formed in 2005 by James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas. The project examines the material properties of sound and its correspondence with architecture, performance and physical modes of production. Their recorded output includes the releases Recur and Collapsed for raster-noton, Signal, a commissioned performance working with ionospheric propagation and Medium, an expanded live recording in Woodchester Mansion in Gloucestershire. Emptyset have produced installations for Spike Island, Tate Britain and the Architecture Foundation and presented live performances with CTM Transmediale, Kunsthalle Zurich and Unsound.
James Ginzburg runs Berlin experimental label Subtext Recordings, and is part of Multiverse Music. Paul Purgas runs sound and text based publishing platform OMNE, which recently released an album from now-labelmates Grumbling Fur.
