Joshua Santospirito (AUS)
Drive West Today
DWT is Joshua Santospirito, improvisational and experimental guitarist from the island of Tasmania. His guitar has quickly become one of the most unpredictable instruments in Australia: sometimes a weapon to be feared, at other times a scrumptious ear-tickling feather. Sitting somewhat uncomfortably between sound-art and jazz, Santospirito has been speaking with his own excitingly unique and ever-evolving tongue for many years now.
DWT has also been a collaborative project over the years, including musicians: Jnine Stanton (Alice Springs) and Nadine Kessler (as part of Silberhörnli from Hobart) as well as visual artists such as – Christopher Downes (Tasmania), Mimi Leung (Hong Kong), and Anthony Magen (as part of MONA FOMA 2010).
