On Friday, 29 June, four Finnish experimental musicians invade Ptarmigan for an exploration of sound, space and improvisation.

Olli Aarni plays ambient music based on collage technique, samples and found sounds. His music under various monikers has been released by labels like Preservation, Under The Spire, Hooker Vision and Jozik.

Hur Hur is a solo music project by Timo Viialainen, featuring instruments such as hurdy gurdy, acoustic/electric guitar, trombone and different percussions & bells. The compositions combine looping and processing the sound of these instruments to form a backing material for improvised live performance. The result could be described as cinematic/cathartic ritual with the aim to create a powerful and psychedelic outcome. The influences of the project lie in the field of apocalyptic folk, primitive shamanistic music, electroacoustic experiments, drone & punk.

Ilpo Heikkinen is an young Helsinki-based sound artist and musician, who operates broadly in the fields of experimental music, installation art and performing arts. In addition, he also works as a recording and mixing engineer, and is a member of the board of Äänen Lumo, an association promoting sound art and experimental music in Finland. Heikkinen's work often deals with the physical and spatial aspects of sound.

Johannes Vartola's music is a combination of electronic and acoustic elements performed with an improvisational touch. He lives in Helsinki.
