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.
Join us at Oksasenkatu 11 this Sunday for another gathering of improvised soundmaking. We are lucky to have Peter Nicholson as our guest workshop leader this month as he is en route to a short residency at Ptarmigan Tallinn. Peter has been working for years with the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra and has been an integral part of the improvised music scene in Scotland and beyond. Please check out his artist page for a full bio.
As always, this workshop is open to anyone! Please bring something to make sound with. Oksasenkatu 11 does not have a sound system so we wil be primarily acoustic; if you require amplification please bring it, and keep it small. We are most excited to have a mixture of musicians and non-musicians here, so please don't be intimidated if you are curious!
More about Svamp on the project page. More about Peter Nicholson on his artist page.
See you there!
