Internet-Connected Poets to Perform Live on April 19 at 7:30pm EDT

Internet2 networks will enable poets around the United States to use TV-quality video and audio to join together in a landmark transcontinental poetry reading celebrating New York School poet and Columbia University faculty member, Kenneth Koch. This live, 90-minute event will feature poets reading the poems of Kenneth Koch, as well as their own work, at nine locations from California to New York beginning at 7:30 p.m. EDT on Saturday, April 19, 2003.

The audience at each site will not only see the poet performing live at their location, but also will see the live performances of the poets in the remote locations via high-fidelity audio and video. In addition, the entire poetry reading will be streamed to an Internet-wide virtual audience, allowing anyone with a RealPlayer or QuickTime viewer to watch the event.

Brown University; Columbia University; University of California, Santa Cruz; University of California, San Diego; University of Colorado, Boulder; University of Michigan, Louisiana State University; Naropa University and Ohio State University are among the universities assisting in producing the event. Featured poets include David Antin, Andrei Codrescu, Maria Damon, Kenward Elmslie, Roxi Hamilton, Anselm Hollo, Forrest Gander, Lisa Jarnot, Ron Padgett, Keith Taylor and Anne Waldman. Ursula Heise, Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, will serve as MC and host for this event. Additional support is provided by the Center for Research in Computing & the Arts (CRCA) at UCSD.
