Yu-Chen Chen: I like to work in the night or alone in the studio. In the night everything going quiet helps me focus. And the other reason is I have serious jet leg when I’m here. I wake up and my brain keeps going because I can’t sleep in the night. So that’s why I named the show, “Making the night mine.”
