EVOL is a computer music group started in 1996. At the core of the project is Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, an artist and composer living and working in Barcelona. Since the late nineties, Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and his collaborators have been producing what they call "computer music for hooligans", inspired by fractal geometry, quantum theory and rave culture. A vortex of generative basslines, air horns, strangely familiar vocalisations and noise, their music displays a radical and playful approach to algorithmic composition. Their work has been published on international record labels like Entr'acte, Mego, Presto!? or their own ALKU.

"...a razor sharp atonalism that follows its own sense of abandoned humor" (Igloo Mag)
"...a brief record that catches the listener off guard with its pseudo-musical, unpredictable nature." (Michael Tau, Vital Weekly)
"reinforced concrète!" (Joe Gerhardt, Semiconductor Films)
"...sounds like R2D2 being raped" (Graham Sharp)
"Simply too much to be true" (Vital Weekly)
"Un universo a metà tra rilettura ironica e applicazione da studiosi matematici, di dificile penetrazione e altrettanto ardua commerciabilità." (Blow Up)
"Booty, sexy music" (Pedro Soler, curator/director of Hangar)
"Generative violence" (RDL Magazine)
"If you've ever wondered what the Carl Stalling-indebted score to a circa-2109 Pixar plotless cartoon about robotic, hyper house-mice might sound like..." (Grooves)
"Punani Rubberist [...] sounds like Parmeggiani doing a soundtrack to Backdoor Sluts 9." (Han Van Den Hoof)
"...this is what I imagine Chewbacca would sound like after a heavy night on ketamine." (Stephen Sharp)
