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.
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.
