Roger Doyle began as a drummer with Supply Demand and Curve and Jazz Therapy playing free-improv and fusion music. Thalia is Doyle’s first large-scale electronic piece, composed at the age of twenty-six. ...It’s a remarkable achievement of “gluing” sound together in order to evoke intense mood. Doyle...was hell-bent on creating a major artistic achievement in sound before the age of thirty. He worked hard to produce works of outstanding quality. It’s hard to decide if the three albums he made before thirty are his opus. Rapid Eye Movements was his third LP.– but one thing is for sure. they are exquisitely beautiful and unique in the world of music'. (Lisa Thatcher in Music Review 2013).
Broadcast on NPR in 1974. Phone numbers given out for people to call in and contribute…out of the contributions, Neuhaus had created a way to loop the sound together. "It was quite a beautiful Sunday afternoon - two hours over which ten thousand people found their way into the work and made sounds." More here: https://www.ubu.com/sound/neuhaus_radio.html
