In recent years my work has turned towards concert music, primarily focusing on interdisciplinary composition. Building on my professional background as a composer for film, theatre, and installations, my art music also often incorporates other media, including still photography, animation, motion graphics, video and sculpture. I was made an Associate Artist of the Australian Music Centre in February 2015.

“Wilcox’s bound together the visuality of film, with music, and travel...and used time, in slowing and speeding it, in a manner that was most engaged in the world, but also prepared to challenge it. It spoke so eloquently of its matter that it was successful.” G.H.Mathwin, Sensible Perth
