Technical Team

Experts of sound, lighting and recording also have a place in the Conscript Band. Experience gained in civilian work tasks comes in handy in vastly different situations during military service. In addition to live shows and massive tours, the technicians work on recordings, equipment maintenance and naturally the preparations and planning of gigs and tours.
