For this New Sounds, we'll take a look at the Irish new music scene, with composers Daniel Figgis and Roger Doyle. Doyle is a former jazz-rock drummer, and writes electro-acoustic and electronic music. Multi-instrumentalist Daniel Figgis is a former member of Virgin Prunes, and an ambient electronic composer of multi-media works, most recently, "Post-Production," as heard on the New Sounds Live concert series.
