Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform 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/at Ptarmigan during these years.
The improvisation workshop Svamp returns after a one-year hiatus. Svamp is a regularly-scheduled workshop for music improvisation. 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 (acoustic or electronic instrument, voice, objects/devices etc). We'll meet at the front door of Sibelius Academy T-building at 4pm on 3rd of April. Send an email to visa (dot) kuoppala (at) gmail (dot) com if you're interested in coming (not compulsory, but useful).
