Donisi Alison Chung-Yan

Donisi is a Greek word meaning oscillation, jolt, or vibrancy and is an apt description of the rhythmic motifs present throughout the piece. The work was created algorithmically using MAX and its orchestration was inspired by the “metal, wood, skin, and plucked” timbres and tone colours of Pierre Boulez’s Phi Selon Pli — a vocal-instrumental work of improvisations based on the poems of Mallarmé.
