Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

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 Ptarmigan for the presentation of work from the Neanderthal Electronics workshop! Over the weekend, Derek Holzer will be teaching a workshop where a group of students will create their own personal, customized primitive noise synthesizers. This concert will showcase the output of this workshop through individual and group presentations.

Derek Holzer will also perform a solo set. Derek is an American sound artist living in Berlin, whose current interests include DIY analog electronics, sound art, field recording and the meeting points of electroacoustic, noise, improv and extreme music. He has played live experimental sound, as well as taught workshops in Pure Data and electronics, across Europe, North America, Brazil and New Zealand.

Additional performances to be announced. This night is free - please come and enjoy the sounds!
