PRLog - Feb. 25, 2009 - BANTRY, Ireland -- Poet, author, musician, and recording and performance artist Kylyra takes the spoken art form of poetry to a new level with KyPoetry. First premiered at Manchester's (UK) 'Poets and...' poetry event in November 2008, KyPoetry has been receiving rave reviews from all over Ireland, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and the US.
KyPoetry combines Kylyra's poetry, music, and performance skills into a dynamic listening experience. "I wanted to do more than simply read my poems aloud," according to Kylyra. "In the words of James Joyce, 'Poetry, even when apparently most fantastic, is always a revolt against artifice, a revolt, in a sense, against actuality'. KyPoetry is my revolt against actuality. It is impossible to recreate some of my recordings in a live setting. The use of panned voices, effects, and complex sounds moves out of actuality and into the realm of the fantastic."
The massive amount of interest in KyPoetry on the internet has garnished Kylyra an interview with Setting Sun, several appearances on the internet radio show Lit Media Reviews on BlogTalk Radio, and a special slot on the Midnight's Muse podcast in January 2009. Kylyra will be making her live performance debut with KyPoetry at Manchester's 'Poets and...' in April 2009. Additional performances in Ireland will be added later in the year and announced at the official KyPoetry page at Dark World International http://www.darkworld.com/
Kylyra is scheduled to release a CD of KyPoetry in late 2009. Currently in the studio recording new material, Kylyra is "carefully selecting sounds and effects that add to the pieces and enrich the listener's experience of each poem". Four poems have been released on the internet, including two free MP3 downloads at http://www.darkworld.com/
Poet and recording artist Kylyra is pleased to announce the web premiere of her new audio poetry project, KyPoetry. Visit http://www.darkworld.com for more information.
