Loop Walks is a series of eight poems, each one mapping a walk from memory. The score and accompanying CD are produced by hardPressed poetry and Béal Festival, the work having been commissioned for Béal Festival in 2012.
The music on these CDs was composed on a Fairlight Computer Music Instrument between 1983 and 1988. The Fairlight was among the first synthesisers controlled by a computer and Roger Doyle 'made great use out of it' and has 'very fond memories of the Fairlight'. Works include Contents of the Pay-Jar and a suite derived from the music composed for The Love of Don Perlimplin and Belissa in the Garden.
