The British duo Emptyset creates acoustic anxiety rooms with their drilling bass, raucous noise, and jagged minimal techno beats. Emptyset views music as a genus of space-shaping and investigates the diverse aggregate states of sound. Sometimes the sound architecture seems to liquefy, then it becomes sharp-edged, crystalline, or brittle. White noise meets rhythmic sculptures releasing contrapuntal facets. But their new album Borders (a title that could perhaps be read in connection with Brexit) is a bit more melodious than usual.
