Irish composer Roger Doyle has worked extensively in theatre, film and dance. Babel, his magnum opus, was released on a 5-CD set in 1999 and is a celebration of the multiplicity of musical language and evolving technologies. It took Doyle ten years to compose. He worked with 48 collaborators and produced 103 individual pieces of music for Babel.
In 2007 he won the Magisterium Award at the Bourges International Electro-acoustic Music Competition in France, for his composition The Ninth Set - part of a 3 album electronic music set called Passades. He has just completed 2 cinema for the ear projects - live soundtracks for imaginary films, performed by the National Symphony Orchestra and The Crash Ensemble respectively - both released on CD. He is constantly amazed that he is a composer.
