Biography

Panzhen (Panpan) Wu is a Chinese composer, audio engineer, songwriter, music director, violinist, and vocalist. Her eclectic composition style spans orchestral works, chamber ensembles, music with cultural elements, as well as ambient, pop, rock, electronic, and experimental genres. She is passionate about collaborating on various visual media and live art, particularly projects with moving stories and unique aesthetics that provoke deep reflection.

As a music director for theater, dance, and multimedia projects, Panpan collaborates with multicultural and multidisciplinary artists, focusing on all musical components, including theme songs and transitional pieces. She is renowned for integrating historically and culturally significant music into contemporary contexts, blending organic melodies with synthesizer tones to evoke a dynamic sense of temporal transformation and achieve a transgressive artistic effect.

Currently, Panpan is pursuing an M.M. in Screen Scoring at New York University, mentored by award-winning musicians Mandy Hoffman, Greg Pliska, and Alba S. Torremocha.
