Guds söner´s field of activity can be described as an investigation of a mental airspace, undertaken with the aid of unconventional tools. The aural aspect is important, but equal care is devoted to the visual.
Guds söner is often augmented with supplementary performers who then also influence the ideas and their expression.
Guds söner put themselves at the disposal of civil defence and strive to imbue fortitude and courage.
