Emptyset
Emptyset

Emptyset is the first record by literal-building-rattlers Emptyset, first released in 2009. Here we get an early version of the duo’s remarkably stern explorations of frequencies and vibrations, rhythms and outright bass-noise. Very precise, very intense, and often fairly danceable. Double LP reissue on Subtext.

Emptyset
Blossoms

Emptyset are a London-based electronic duo made up of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas. They made their latest album, Blossoms, using Machine Learning Technology. Ginzburg is known as a solo artist and as the person who runs the label Subtext and co-runs Arc Light Editions. Purgas curated the Wysing Arts Centre’s annual music festival and has lectured and written books on electronic music. It’s fair to say they know their stuff.

James Ginzburg
Six Correlations

James Ginzburg might be better known to you as 50% of Emptyset, that most crushing of electronic music projects. This solo record, which was put together for a Berlin commission earlier this year, engages with a wider palette than that group, with folk musics of many different hues mixing with generative composition. Six Correlations is out on Subtext.

Emptyset
Skin

What’s this?! Emptyset presenting material that was produced using only acoustic methods of production rather than racks of hardware electronics? Well I never. Of course, mini-album Skin’s four tracks still sound remarkably like Emptyset, despite the different textures at play: hammered zithers, voices and the like. LP on Thrill Jockey.

Emptyset
Medium

Subtext (Roly Porter, Vex’d) re-press Emptyset’s 2012 mini-LP (which means it’s an EP, then) Medium. The bass-bothering duo recorded these tracks on location in a ruined Gothic mansion near Gloucester, and the reverberant surroundings add extra depth to these moody cross-breeds of dubstep and electro-acoustic composition.

Emptyset
Borders

More dark and heavy beat-work from Bristol / Berlin’s Emptyset. On Borders, the duo have incorporated some acoustic instruments into their tangled web of brutalist electronics, pushing their sound into some new areas, though don’t worry: this is still music to wreck buildings to. Borders is Emptyset’s first release for the Thrill Jockey label.
