The Curious Works of Roger Doyle is a documentary, which looks at the life’s work of Irish composer Roger Doyle as he prepares for the staging of his first electronic opera in Dublin in 2016. The film closely follows the preparations for the staging of this ambitious production and takes a trip through the surreal and otherworldly music of the “Godfather of Irish Electronica”. With long-time collaborator, actress Olwen Fouere, Roger has produced music for some truly striking works in Irish avant-garde theatre, and has also produced soundtrack music for Ireland’s first wave of film directors; Joe Comerford, Bob Quinn and Cathal Black, all of whom are contributors to the documentary.
