On the web:

Punck is the pseudonym chosen by Adriano Zanni, born in 1964 and currently living in Ravenna, for his experimental music project.

After some seminal experiences during the '80s, he approached electronic music in the late '90s using the web as a preferred way of trade and diffusion.

Punck creates his sound canvas manipulating many different kinds of acoustic sources with audio editors and softwares. Among such sources we find digital synthesis, contact microphones and field-recordings.

His first demo was released in 2001 and also contained tracks made in collaborations with Sawako, Formatt and Nyva.

During 2002/2003 he self-released a CD-R EP entitled "Mu" distributed by S'agita Recordings and his music appeared on many compilations and web-based projects.

Among his many collateral activities, we cannot help to mention Ctrl+Alt+Canc, a net-label dedicated to experimental music of all kinds, that has released many works of artists such as aal, Logoplasm, Sawako, Phil Thomson, Ovo and Sinistri.

His second official work, a 3" MiniCD-R entitled "A Movie Without Images" was released in 2004 on Ctrl+Alt+Canc and received many positive reviews from the underground music press.

He participated to many experimental music festivals in Italy and nowadays he keeps to privilege live activities. During his sets he uses laptop, portable CD players, various objects and selfmade videoclips.

His first full lenght CD album entitled "Nowhere Campfire Tapes" was released in April 2005 as a Ctrl+Alt+Canc / Afe joint venture.

"A Constant Migration (Between Reality and Fiction)", his second CD, was released by portuguese label Creative Sources Recordings In October 2006.

"Aube noire", a MiniCD-R Card containing three very short compositions, was released by Afe in April 2007.
