"I was beguiled, intrigued and perplexed by Roger Doyle's music which I had been aware of for many years before we actually met in the mid Noughties. This film is the product of both my reaction to his music and the act of shining a light onto one of Ireland's most overlooked and enigmatic artists. I structured the film around the launch, rehearsals and finally, the opening night of his first electronic opera. Thankfully, observing this process proved to be fascinating and the end result was one of the most remarkable spectacles I had ever seen on an Irish stage." - Brian Lally
As of August 2021, there are now two different versions of the film in circulation: the original cinema version (2018) which runs at 105 minutes and the more recent TV version (2021) which runs at 79 minutes. The main difference is that the TV version omits the extensive section about Roger's film soundtrack work and some of the behind-the-scenes footage of the opera rehearsals. The other notable difference is that the cinema version has a 2:4 aspect ratio while the TV version was remastered at 16:9 for broadcast.
