pax duo is a dynamic new percussion project created by Tristan Swihart and Micah Detweiler. Based in Goshen, IN and Madison, WI. pax duo aims to break preconceptions of contemporary percussion through collaboration and new creation of genre bending works.
Tristan and Micah first met in the fall of 2012 when Micah began working with the Northridge Raider Marching Band in Middlebury, IN where Tristan was a student. The marching band show that year was entitled Et in Terra Pax. Since then they have gone from student and teacher to close friends and colleagues.
In their first season alone, pax duo has had more than 20 engagements including performances at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Goshen College, Indiana Wesleyan University, DePauw University, and Purdue Fort Wayne. They are continually working on new projects and commissions and expanding their list of collaborators.
pax duo are Malletech performing artists and are proud to endorse their products.
