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.


On Wednesday, 17 July, Derek Holzer returns to Ptarmigan to lead a one-day workshop in building SoundBoxes. This workshop will allow the creation of an electronic musical instrument using common objects, reinvestigating the sonic world of the everyday. The workshop is currently full, but you can register to join the waiting list and maybe someone will cancel and you'll be lucky.

But, everyone is invited to Ptarmigan that evening, beginning at 20:00, for the public performance of the workshop. This is a free peformance that will also include DJ Kaarel Künnap and possibly some other surprises.

Derek has worked with Ptarmigan since we began and we're always thrilled to have him share his ideas through workshops,  performances, and other forms.

Stay tuned for more sound/electronics projects soon, including the Pulsar Kites project by our current artist-in-residency, Juan Carlos Duarte Regino.
