Scars monthly iPodCast

An open letter about Scars Publications / Janet Kuypers dot com podcasts

    Over the years (2005 through 2009) over 50 podcasts have been created for free distribution of different forms of performance art. Most podcasts have been poetry book readings, though podcasts have included live performance art shows, compilations of performance art CD releases, and (occasionally) music from local acoustic bands.

    A multi-CD disc set has been released of most of the past podcasts (the only podcasts that will not be included in the CD release are the podcasts of music performances). The extensice CD set is called “the Evolution of Performance Art.”

the Evolution of Performance Art     The podcasts (with this CD set release) in this series are ending. Two bonus releases will be made available on the CD set of book reading podcasts, and the music podcasts (like 01/06 Mom’s Favorite Vase, 03/06 Sing Your Life, 04/06 Change/Rearrange, 11/06 Mom’s Favorite Vase, 12/06 Change/Rearrange, 06/07 Mom’s Favorite Vase and 01/08 Mom’s Favorite Vase) will remain at this site, but the way these book reading podcasts will be available in the future is through online sales (at places like Napster, or view the long list below of some places that carry this release). Look below for full listings of the titles of pieces read in each of the podcasts.

    It has been an honor and we have been thrilled to make these performance art podcasts available to the world for so long, and we thank everyone who has had interest in the performance art and podcast world. We believe that if people were unaware of this podcast over the years in the past, having these tracks available at larger web sites online would give these performance art and poetry readings tracks more exposure to the world, so more may be able to enjoy this audio poetry format.

    This page will remain here, for anyone interested in knowing about the track availability, and... Thank you for being a part of the poetry and performance art podcast community.
