Points of No Return Chin-Chin Chen

Points of No Return shifts between two different environments or landscapes. To achieve this, sounds were divided into two categories according to their nature and timbre; but as the piece goes on, some sounds from one environment also occur in the other one. Points of No Return employs music concrète techniques and digital editing and processing. Only at a very late stage is electronically generated sound incorporated to color some dramatic moments. Points of No Return is divided into 5 sections, alternating between two different landscapes.
