The Head of the Station, Aodán Ó Dubhghaill, has described her appointment as "...an exciting initiative in the creation of new music for lyric. Linda's compositional talent doesn't so much span as ignore in a very informed way the boundaries between the live acoustic sound of an orchestra and electronics."
