patchtax – consisting of saxophonist, Mary Joy Patchett, and violist, Eve Boltax – was founded in 2013. The duo explores unconventional performance practices within the realm of classical chamber music. The duo’s latest project is a West Coast performance tour of San Francisco, Seattle, and Vancouver. patchtax spent the month of February 2016 in residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts (Canada) where they continued their exploration of theatricality in music performance. This residency led to a May of 2016 performance at Mobius (Cambridge) featuring projected video and a collaboration with dancer Elizabeth Epsen.
