puck


Puck was started in early 2007 by Antonio Cencherle who wanted to try and incorporate electronic beats into his quirky yet classical style of song-writing. Being one of the key song-writers for another popular Cape-town act, he decided to try his hand at something completely foreign by merging pure opera vocals with electronic break beats and glitch. While studying classical piano at the South African College of Music in 2002 Antonio met Robin Botha an exceptionally talented young opera singer with astounding coloratura vocals. Robins voice provided the drama and agility that would be so vital to Antonio's song-writing. Having already collaborated, in both the classical/opera and contemporary band genres, these two decided to work together to make music that is both powerfully dramatic and energetic! The final member to join the band in June 2007 was Dirk de Kock. The three had been friendly for the past two years as Dirk had worked with them recording an album for another band. The two were originally searching for a bassist but the energy Dirk provided on guitar was both thrilling and addictive. The name of the band was inspired by Robin's favourite character Puck from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" -quite appropriately since Puck's real name is Robin Goodfellow. In the Artscape and South African College of Music 2005 opera adaptation by Benjamin Britten, Robin performed the title role of Helena and had been greatly inspired by Puck's unrepentant and mischievous nature! The song "Puck's Theme" is mostly taken from Shakespeare's text. Although electronic the music is highly emotional and dramatic maintaining all the raw feeling of true Verismo opera. The battle between nature and machine set aside their differences and come together here in an alluring mix of voice and beats. The music has dark undertones but the phenomenal vocals soar and leave the listener exhilarated and astounded. Antonio provides lively and quirky melodies on keyboard beautifully incorporating classical and jazz piano. The raw sound of Dirk on guitar adds interesting melodies and fullness to the sound. The sound of this band is both hauntingly beautiful at times and rawly powerful.
