From low-voltage expertise to hi-fi ska
By day, Aleksandr Gorlov is an expert at retrofit design, ensuring that Schneider Electric low- and medium-voltage equipment is supported by his team’s meticulous documentation. By night, his upbeat, rock-steady rhythms can be heard in the nightlife of Moscow. "We’re heavily influenced by Jamaican music and electric reggae," says Aleksandr, who plays both guitar and trumpet. Aside from playing the capital, his ska band does mini tours to Samara, Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, Vologda, and other Russian cities. "Working with a band is a lot like working with our services design bureau — I get to collaborate with people for a beneficial outcome, and I never ever get bored."
