“Judy Wu fulfills her role as an ambassador of nature, pledging us all for change and awareness on the subject of conservation not only for wildlife but also for the indigenous community worldwide.” – Monica Tong (Music Press Asia, Asia)
Wu Judy Chin-tai is an award-winning Taiwanese record producer whose works focus on sounds of the nature, instrumental and ethnic music. Upon concluding her studies in the United State, Wu returned to Taiwan and started working for Wind Music as a field recording engineer, composer, and music producer. Her works concerning the natural habitats in Taiwan, such as “The Forest Show”, “My Ocean”, “The Nearest Heaven” and many more, have stimulated substantial attention to the sounds of nature and raised awareness for the Taiwanese wilderness.
In 2001, Wu won her first Golden Melody Awards for Best Producer with her work in “My Ocean”, and her subsequent works garnered various Golden Melody Awards. Her 2009 production “Deum Music Land” for Taiwanese percussion ensemble Ten Drum Art Percussion Group received a Grammy nomination for Best Tradition World Music Album.
It has been over 20 years since the release of “The Forest Show”, Wind Music’s first album in the Music with the Sounds of Nature series, and Wu continues to visit places in the mountain wilderness and by the sea, recording the precious sounds of animals’ traditional music, and more. Her recordings, incorporated with other music, have been released as several albums.
