James Wu (Y.C.C.)
P.O. Box 770602
Woodside, NY 11377-0602

James Wu is a graduate of Mannes the New School for Music (BM '11 violin, MM '13 composition).

James has been recording concerts and musical performances since 2014. Sometimes they've occurred in strange and unconventional spaces but, given his conservatory refined hearing abilities and awareness of how musicians operate, he's always been up for the challenge.

During that time, James picked up on film audio techniques as well, using the same tools that allows him to create accurate and clean recordings: his ears. He's been a fully capable boom operator and mixer since 2016.

James prides himself on stitching and blending together pieces of audio seamlessly for a final mix that sounds like it was recorded in a single take. In sound design, he also understands how sound tells a story, with or without an image.
