Kudos galore to veteran Irish composer Roger Doyle. The godfather of Irish electronica won the Magisterium Award at the Bourges International Electro-acoustic Music Competitio in France.

The prize, which is awarded to composers with at least 25 years of professional experience, highlights works that might become milestones in the history of electro-acoustic music.

Doyle, who has produced music in Ireland since the release of his 1978 album, Thalia, won the accolade for his work The Ninth Set.

Lyric FM will profile Doyle and celebrate his Magisterium win on Sunday next at 8pm.
