Chris Bartholomew

Sound Designer/Composer

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available


I've been working in many and varied roles in theatre and music since leaving the Guildhall School of Music in 2013.

My skillset lies across the borders of sound design, composition and electronic performance - I spend my time largely in theatres big and small or composing in my home studio. 

As a Sound Designer and Composer I've been lucky enough to work with some amazing directors - Suba Das (Leceister Curve), George Mann (Theatre Ad Infinitum, Bristol Old Vic), Hannah Price (Theatre Uncut), Paula Garfield (Deafinately Theatre). I'm very passionate about creating relationships with directors - having a shared language of sound is crucial to my job. My work is characterised by immersive sound scapes that are reactive and dynamic. 

As a performer, I'm often as classed as a DJ which is both right and wrong! Whilst I do regularly get behind the decks in a traditional sense, more often I use DJ tools and technology to perform my own music in a variety of contexts: I've performed in theatres (Finborough, Marlowe), music venues (too many to mention!), Portsmouth Cathedal and on the helipad of a boat! 

If you have a project or opportunity you think I'd suit, I'd love to hear from you!
