Ptarmigan is now closed.

Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.


Our good friend Derek Holzer stopped by on Wednesday and ran a one-day workshop in building SoundBoxes. These instruments used basic electronics embedded into everyday household objects to create uniquely personal and domestic objects. In the evening, a small crowd gathered to see the instruments in action. The audience was encouraged to play the SoundBoxes as well, turning the Ptarmigan performance room into an open free-for-all.

Derek finished the evening with a performance of his own music, working with synthesisers and other electronic creations of his. Thanks to everyone who participated and attended; it was a lovely evening.
