Biography

Geoffrey Cox began his musical career in London as a guitarist in a post-punk, new wave band in 1979. Rejecting all forms of structured musical learning, he submerged himself in various rock groups before finally embarking on a course of musical study at Liverpool Community College in 1989 which led to the formation of a jazz-influenced quintet playing mostly his own music.  This, in turn, led to an exploration of classical and contemporary music through an HND. He completed a First class honours degree in composition at Huddersfield in 1999  and a PhD in 2007 which focuses on the use of borrowed material in sampled and written form across a wide variety of musical genres. Other specialisms include Popular Musicology (the history and effect of technological developments on popular music) and working with visual images in a musical context, work which has become increasingly important to his output.
