Thirlwell's music—released under his various project names of Foetus , Wiseblood , Steroid Maximus , Baby Zizanie, Manorexia and others—includes elements of 20th century classical music , noise , big band , Americana , jazz , punk rock , African and Cuban percussion, and epic/horror film soundtracks. Much of Thirlwell's aural output is built on a percussive, rock music-type structure, though to call it rock music would be inaccurate. His music employs elements of many genres: with an often frenzied aesthetic, Thirlwell's music combines percussion, strings, distortion, brass, electric guitars, electronic sounds and voice. Recurring lyrical themes include destruction, persecution, anxiety, abuse, incest, masochism, angst, self-destruction, self-abuse, lust, prejudice, murder, failure and machismo, often expressed using American colloquialism and black humour .

After a decade-long hiatus, Thirlwell revived his Steroid Maximus project in 2001 (without Watts). Ectopia was recorded and released as the third album for Mike Patton's Ipecac label in 2002. Steroid Maximus made its live debut in Los Angeles in 2003, facilitated by a commission from UCLA . Thirlwell rearranged the music for an 18-piece orchestra, with string and brass section. This included trumpeter Steven Bernstein , with whom he had worked with on the Foetus album Gash . Conducted by Thirlwell, the ensemble contained such luminaries as Nels Cline , DJ Bonebrake and Bruce Fowler . He has since performed with French and Austrian versions of this ensemble, and in 2005 extended the repertoire to add a set of Foetus material for the Donaufestival .

If there is a common thread to his varied musical styles, it is a dramatic intensity and an evocative, cinematic quality. Thirlwell is also featured as producer or remixer on a wide variety of artist recordings, including releases for artists as diverse as Nine Inch Nails, Excepter, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Lydia Lunch,The The, Coil, Z's, and Swans. JG has completed commissions for Kronos Quartet, Bang On A Can and LEMUR and is also a member of the "freq_out" sound-art collective, who create on-site sound and light installations. JG performs live with a chamber version of his Manorexia project, and also scores The Venture Brothers , a cartoon on Adult Swim/Cartoon Network. JG Thirlwell received the 2010 New York Foundation of the Arts Fellowship in Music/Sound.

In recent years, with commissions for Kronos Quartet , Bang On A Can , and his occasional eighteen piece ensemble, he has been increasingly interested electronically and sample generated music being re-scored for traditional instrumentation – played both conventionally and not (recent examples include performing with a chamber ensemble version of Manorexia). Thirlwell is also a member of the “freq_out” sound-art collective, who create on-site sound and light installations led by curator Carl Michael Von Hausswolf . In addition, Thirlwell scores “The Venture Brothers” , a hit cartoon show on Adult Swim/Cartoon Network.
