"Evol is a computer music duo formed in 1996 by Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and Anna Ramos in Barcelona. Their recordings and performances explore the many sides of digital noise and algorithmic-driven composition. Harsh and bloody trips along the most extreme path of academic music, putting together sonic brutality, crazy algebra, fractal structures and a slight ironic touch. When they are not working on Evol, they are probably playing Playstation, building Lego robots, trying to run their home-imprint Alku, spreading digital Chindogus from imbecil.net or feeding Perkele, the luckiest chinchilla in Europe. Magia Potagia is a document of the work Evol have been doing within the field of algorithmic composition for the past three years. It features three tracks from two different periods, all of them 100% computer-generated and almost no edited at all, to preserve their fractal nature. 'Punani Potagia' is the fourth composition in a series of pieces that started in early 2002, involving a combination of complex Frequency Modulation techniques and strange attractors. Previous tracks of this ongoing series have been released on Fals.ch ('Super Punani'), Scarcelight ('Punani Shell') and Alienation ('Redneck Punani'). 'Pus pus pus' and 'Walpurgis' are part of a series of stochastic generative works from 2001. These pieces mark the beginning of Evol's interest for what they call anti-climax tracks, where despite constant nano-changes in pitch, velocity or general structure, there's no relevant variation from beginning to end."
