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.
Den Arkaiska Rösten (The Archaic Voice) is Per Åhlund and Girilal Baars of Uppsala, Sweden, experimental sound artists that since long have used their voice as source and tool in their music. In 2010 they started working together and quickly formed their own sound world; with sacred chanting, floating melodies or guttural droning, loopers, delayes and distortion.
Also performing will be Estonian-based American improvising musician Ted Parker.
