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.
NYC-based trombonist and electronics artist Brett Sroka is at Ptarmigan for a short research-based residency and will be presenting his work in a concert. Brett will play solo and with John W. Fail in a series of thematic improvisations. The audience is encouraged to participate through movement, adding or subtracting sounds, and making their presence active rather than merely listening in silence like the typical concert of improvised music.

This event will also feature Ernie's Pop-Up Spa, where local artist Ernest Truely will offer fantastic hair stylings and head/shoulder massages, on stage, while the music is going on.
