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.
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).
