Roc Jiménez de Cisneros (Barcelona, 1975) is an artist. In 1996, he founded the computer music project EVOL, which has been the core of much of his artistic output to date. His approach can be understood as an aesthetic exploration of algorithmic composition and a deconstruction of rave culture. His work has been released by international record companies such as Entr’acte, Mego, Presto!? and fals.ch, and on his own record label, ALKU, which he co-directs with Anna Ramos since 1997. Straddling psychedelia and academia, Jiménez de Cisneros has presented his work live and in installation form at galleries, museums and clubs in Europe, North America and Asia.
