Composer & Sound Designer
London / Amsterdam

Jethro is a composer and sound designer working in film, theatre, performance art and installed media. Drawing on a range of traditional and experimental techniques from across contemporary, classical and electronic music, he works closely with his collaborators to find the best ways to support and augment their work with music and sound. 

As a theatre sound designer Jethro uses his experience with computer programming, live electroacoustics and system design to build responsive and immersive soundworlds and performance tools.

Jethro also works as a music educator, teaching courses in electronic music for the Guildhall School, running workshops for universities and teaching one-on-one in Amsterdam. He plays guitar with ambient-pop artist Flora Sophie, and runs dance music label muon.

Second Body

In 2019 Jethro co-founded Second Body with UK based director and musician Max Barton. Together they make shows that combine live music, science and storytelling to explore urgent topics.

Their critically acclaimed debut show STYX had its world premiere in Perth in January 2019, where it won a Fringe World Award. Its UK premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019 secured Second Body a Total Theatre Award nomination for emerging company. 

Second Body has been supported by Arts Council England, The West Australian DLGSC, and was shortlisted for an Arts Foundation award in 2022. They are currently preparing the release of their debut album.
