Flo Wilson is a composer, producer and artist based in Wellington, New Zealand. A recent graduate from Sonic Arts at Te Kōkī – New Zealand School of Music, Flo received first-class honours for her custom-designed multi-channel, spatial sound installations and subsequent performances. Her interests in music and art stem from computer music, embodied performance, spatial design and immersive installations and the relationship we have as people to technology; how it can extend, reduce and manipulate our modes of being. She has exhibited and performed at the Audio Foundation, Adam Art Gallery, and Enjoy Gallery as well as composed (then performed) new works for the New Zealand School of Dance for the Choreographic Season. Flo recently premiered her first solo exhibition in Wellington featuring aforementioned custom designed multi-channel installations for quiet listening. She is the outgoing co-artist in residence for the Toi Poneke/ NZSM Sound Art Residency with Olivia Webb for 2017/2018.
Under her former alias Foxtrot, she completed a trans-Tasman tour, including playing Camp A Low Hum, Chronophonium and Lines of Flight festivals. She has also supported Baths, Dan Deacon and Don McGlashan.
