CHUNG Shefong founded Trees Music and Art, a folk and root music label, in 1993. Trees Music and Art (www.treesmusic.com) collaborates with artists with similar mind and vision in producing quality music, and has developed to be one of the few indie music labels celebrating independent music yet growing internationally. A number of the records she has produced under the label receive critical acclaim and awards from Taiwan and abroad. In 2001, Chung started Migration Music Festival, an annual music festival organized around the theme of “migration”, with the aim to provide a platform for integrating music and cultural issues, and sound experiments. Chung has also been commissioned to curate and produce music festivals in various regions/ counties in Taiwan.
Chung currently teaches at the College of Communication of the National Cheng-chi University (NCCU), and is acting as the director of the NCCU Art and Culture Center. She also initiated the Popular Music & Culture Curriculum at NCCU, the first university curriculum in Taiwan to invite collaborations between academics and pop music industries.
In 2011, she made her first trip to India, which has brought her to continue a journey on documentary filmmaking. In 2013, she has completed her first documentary film From Border to Border on Indian Chinese community with a team of Taiwanese, German, Indian, and Indonesian artists and crew members.
