French visual artist Joanie Lemercier has a background in graphic design and first began experimenting with video projection as a VJ at clubs and festivals around Europe. Shortly after relocating to Bristol, UK in 2005, he began a series of experiments and studies exploring light and form: projections onto transparent materials, mapping onto 3d objects, stereoscopy, and other investigations into the aesthetic potential of geometry and light.

With three other visual artists from Europe, Joanie created the visual label AntiVJ in 2008 to produce and develop audio­visual projects, installations, architectural mappings and stage design. Projects from the label have since then been presented all over Europe, in Russia, Canada, USA, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, China and New Zealand in venues such as the Centre Pompidou (FR).

Emptyset is a Bristol based production project formed in 2005 by James Ginzburg, director of the Multiverse studios and network of labels and the curator and electronic artist Paul Purgas. The project explores the legacy of analogue media, integrating aspects of rhythm, signal processing and spatial recording within the framework of minimalist composition. Their work interrogates the perceptual boundaries between noise and music and the potential for both technology and architecture to embed and codify themselves within sound.

Through collaborations with visual designers they have extended their work to explore the potential interactions between sound and image, reflecting upon structural film and video techniques and addressing the evolving relationship between old and new media.
