Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.
Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.
Svamp is a monthly workshop for music improvisation, organized as a collaboration between Ptarmigan and Äänen Lumo. It does not involve money, careers or obligations - only interpersonal and sound relationships. Svamp sessions may range from free collective improvisation to directed exercises or game-playing. You do NOT have to be a professional or trained musician - just someone with an interest in sound, an open mind, and the ability to listen.
The session is open to anyone interested - please bring with you something to make sound with (an acoustic or electronic instrument, voice, objects/devices etc). We'll meet at Chamber music hall (Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu 9) at 3pm on this week's Sunday. If the front door is locked, I'll be waiting there from around 14:55 till 15:05. If you suspect you'll come later than that, contact us.
