Irish composer Roger Doyle's first release on Die Stadt is his prize-winning work The Ninth Set, a 67-minute masterpiece in 5 parts. He was awarded the Magisterium Prize at this years' Bourges International Electro-Acoustic Music Competition in France for parts 4 and 5. The award, which is one of the most important prizes in the world for electronic music, is open to composers having at least 25 years of professional experience in the field, and its objective is 'the promotion and diffusion of works that might become milestones in the history of electro-acoustic music.' Previous works of Doyle include a 5CD set Babel which took ten years to compose, where each track corresponds to a room or place within an imagined tower city; and the 3 hour Passades, music made from software that freezes sounds like a freeze-frame in DVD. He's also known for his project Operating Theatre which released the classic Rapid Eye Movements album -- consisting of 4 works composed between 1968-1980 -- on Steven Stapleton's (Nurse With Wound) own United Dairies label in 1980. Furthermore, he guested on Fovea Hex's Neither Speak Nor Remain Silent EP number 2 Huge, alongside (among others) Clodagh Simonds, Brian Eno, Percy Jones and Colin Potter. The CD comes in a color digipack in a first edition of 600 copies.
