Live music performance: Utyugon

Location: Calvert 22 Gallery (talk), St Leonard’s Church, Shoreditch (performance)

Cultural historian and BBC broadcaster Alexander Kan discusses the history of the utyugon – an instrument created in the 1980s by artists Timur Novikov and Ivan Sotnikov out of scrap metal, domestic irons and a wooden kitchen table. Kan will chart their associations with the Russian rock band Kino and the Popular Mechanics orchestra and the New Composers. Followed by a live music performance on a custom-built utyugon, with Ivan Sotnikov and Aza Shade, lead singer of London-based no wave band Manflu.
