Electro-acoustic music composer Roger Doyle, Ireland's first in this genre, attempted
a 'masterpiece before the age of thirty' in his composition Rapid Eye Movements
in the late 70s.
Upon its release in 1981, the UK Sounds magazine said:
'without doubt one of the most exhilerating LPs and unorthodox concepts ever submitted
Now remastered and repackaged on CD with 3 extra tracks from the period, this
work has just become available again.
