The Listening Party: Paul Purgas & Imran Perretta

26 Jun 2020

We delve back into Imran Perretta's The Listening Party, a talk series exploring the influences of British-South Asian artists. 

For the first event, Imran was in conversation with Paul Purgas, a multidisciplinary artist working with sound, performance and installation. Paul is also one half of Emptyset, a London/Berlin based production project formed in 2005 with James Ginzburg.

The Listening Party series brought together an array of artists and musicians, each exploring the unique sonic and visual cultures that underpin their practice. In conversation with Somerset House Studios resident, Imran Perretta, the artists explored their deepest cuts, from music videos obsessions to unreleased album tracks, each meditating on the influences that have shaped their identity and their creative output. 

Imran Perretta is a multidisciplinary artist, whose practice encompasses sound, performance, poetry and the moving image. 

Paul Purgas is a London based artist and musician working with sound, performance and installation.
