Artist: DOYLE, ROGER
Title: Baby Grand
Format: CD
Label: BVHaast
Country: Netherlands
Price: $17.00
"Among my first piano compositions was Six Pieces for Pupils who Dont Like Exams. Baby Grand is the sixth of these and is composed for four hands (in this version I multitracked myself and used some double-speed recording techniques). ... Then in the 1980s I received two once-in-a-lifetime commissions ... The first was to compose music for a film by Irish film-maker Bob Quinn, called Budawanny. The music (which had to be piano music) was the play a central tole in this film, which was shot as a silent movie in black and white with captions appearing when people spoke. It required seventy minutes of music to be composed for it - uninterrupted by anyone talking over it (a composers dream) ... The second commission was from Dublins Gat Theatre to compose music for a production of Oscar Wildes play Salome, which required a piano player onstage throughout the show, playing non-stop for almost tow hours. For this Baby Grand CD I have included five pieces from that suite, but have replaced Salomes Dance with a new version recorded in concert in 2003. Mansard is from a 5CD set called Babel which took me ten years to compose (1989-1999). Each track corresponds to a room within an imagined giant Babel tower." --Roger Doyle, Autumn 2005.

Title: The Passades - Volume 2 (His Masters Noise Volume 3)
Format: CD
Label: BVHaast
Country: Netherlands
Price: $17.00
"A new work from Roger Doyle ( for electronics & transformed voices). Produced and composed by Roger Doyle. - BVHaast.

"I began Passades in early 2002 working with the creative possibilities of music software which captures sounds like a freeze-time video, making sound movement stop, or go forwards or backwards slowly. For raw material I used extracts (four seconds at a time) from previous compositions of mine which were fed into the software which would freeze them, and by mouse manipulation I would slowly move the material backwards and fowards onscreen to see if there was potential for keeping those particular extracts. On a trial and error basis I collected almost three hours of material in this way over a period of two and half years ... I have introduced the three Link/Separators and a piece from 2000 The Idea and its Shadow as contrasting material ... There is an ancient voice in this music which seems to travel through the present into the future, then back again into the past." -- Roger Doyle, Spring 2005
