David Hewitt (composer and percussionist) has been involved in new and highly original music and performance making in Australia for over 20 years, most notably as a founding member of Taikoz and founder of the Bega-based Stonewave Taiko, with Synergy Percussion and with his internationally acclaimed, category-defying outfit The Spaghetti Western Orchestra (SWO). As part of the SWO creative team he has developed and performed works such as The Session and Chamber Made Opera’s Phobia. As musical director of The Old Van Theatre Company David has worked with remote, regional and indigenous communities developing new site-specific theatre works including The Seal Wife and The Life and Deaths of Don Koyote.
