DOYLE, ROGER - RAPID EYE MOVEMENTS (CD)


Brilliant and unique experimental tape works (from 1968-1980) reissued on this Irish composer's own label. "Roger Doyle is most well-known for his United Dairies release of his legendary masterwork Rapid Eye Movements, which was described in 1982 upon its release, in the UK Sounds magazine, as: 'without doubt one of the most exhilerating LPs and unorthodox concepts ever submitted to vinyl'. Now remastered and repackaged on CD with 2 extra tracks from the period, this work becomes available again." Consists of the two tape-manipulation pieces from the original LP (issued on UD in '82); 'Finestra' ('77 studio transformations of previous orchestral recordings), and 'Rapid Eye Movements' ('77-'80, recorded at various locales, including the Institute of Sonology, Utrecht), with 2 other pieces from the same period - one of which is for solo piano.
