Emptyset is the innovative electronic duo of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas. The pair shares a history in Bristol’s underground music scene as well as an impressive list of production credits. Ginzburg, now Berlin based, runs a network of record labels including electronic music label
Subtext and Arc Light Editions, whose reissues include a work by Arthur Russell. He’s a prolific producer and remixer for both independent and major labels, with diverse projects such as Faint Wild Light, Ginz and more recently Bleed Turquoise. Purgas, now based in London, founded the We Elude Control label in 2009, a curated collection of rare experimental music. Purgas is an artist, writer and curator who has presented projects with Tate, Whitechapel and Serpentine Galleries, and he is also an active promoter of electronic music in eclectic spaces from a carpark to a Modernist pavilion.

Emptyset stand at the vanguard of electronic music. With each release, they stretch boundaries and explore new methods of creating sounds
with scientific precision. On their latest album Borders, released by Thrill Jockey, the artists use the techniques of creating sounds developed during recording, juxtaposing them with ritual repetitions and raw ornaments. It is an ideal picture of their minimalist style and musical craftsmanship.
