Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and Stephen Sharp make computer music for hooligans and deconstructed rave objects.
Their music has been published on record labels like Entr'acte, Mego, Presto!?, fals.ch or their very own ALKU. Their work has been exhibited in festivals, clubs, galleries and museums throughout the world. The name of the project comes from Sambucus Ebulus (in Catalan, évol), a herbaceous species of elder with a characteristic foetid smell.
