“Doyle’s sound world is distinctive…and strangely beautiful…It’s always reassuring to hear artists exercising opulent creativity and producing wholly original work, which iGIRL most certainly is.”
Critics Choice Award Opera News USA, Dec. 2021.
“One of Doyle’s most sophisticated scores laid down in stratified layers of kaleidoscopic sound with artisanal dexterity and precision. The result shows him still able to surprise, still growing, and still setting the pace.”
