His career was boosted in 1957 when he worked with Miles Davis on the soundtrack Ascenseur pour l'Échafaud. In 1959, Wilen wrote his two soundtracks Un Témoin Dans la Ville and Jazz sur scène with Kenny Clarke.

He wrote a soundtrack for Roger Vadim's film Les Liaisons Dangeureuse two years later, working with Thelonious Monk. Wilen returned to composing for French films in the 1980s and 1990s. In the mid-to-late 1960s he became interested in rock, and recorded an album dedicated to Timothy Leary. He also worked with punk rockers before returning to jazz in the 1990s.

Wilen played with modern jazz musicians until his death in 1996. He died of cancer in Paris at the age 59. In 1987, French comic book artist Jacques de Loustal and author Philippe Paringaux paid homage to Wilen in their "bande dessinée" Barney et la note bleue ("Barney and the blue note").

One admits that life seems to be very expensive, nevertheless people need cash for different issues and not every person gets enough money. Therefore to get some loan or consolidation loans will be a correct way out.

I had a dream to make my business, but I did not earn enough of money to do this. Thank God my close friend suggested to take the mortgage loans. Hence I used the bank loan and made real my old dream.
