Panetone & Koelse at Ptarmigan

On Saturday 27.11 we are will be playing a special set at Ptarmigan. Our Brazilian guest Cristiano Rosa will be performing with his wonderfull set of circuitbend toys and DIY instruments. Cristianos show is titled Short lived like a butterfly.

“Short lived like a butterfly” – Performance

“Short lived like a butterfly” is an audiovisual performance that uses unique electronic instruments, delicate and unstable, built by the combination of assorted materials found at electronic debris, using Circuit Bending. These devices when played together generate electrical signals that reach a wide range of frequencies (from audible to ultrasonic). Depending on the combination of these signs, to locate its source is impossible because the space is filled with this mass of sound that resonates in our body. The instruments are unstable and sometimes they can simply stop, creating a constant risk during the presentation. All these malfunctions or glitches turn part of the improvisation.

KOELSE will warmup playing with a prototype of our selfs-sufficient performance platform.


And the nice people from Cristianos DIY together workshop will be playing something as well.

So be there, Ptarmigan Nilsiänkatu 10, 27.11.2010 21.00
Costs you 3 euros
