Härnösand is a town in Västernorrland County, Sweden with 17,556 inhabitants in 2010. It is called “the gate to the High Coast” because of the world heritage landscape just a few miles north of Härnösand. That is Wikipedia-lingo for “pretty remote”.
Last week Harnösand attracted many sound engineers from Sweden and abroad. In total it were 12 participants attending the class. Tarek even came all the way from Amman, Jordan.
The course is open to all interested persons – no prior measurement / system alignment experience required. However, this course does assume a working knowledge of professional sound system engineering practices and basic audio fundamentals.

14 sound engineers from all over Norway, Great Britain and Ireland came to the amazing Kilden concert house in the lovely town Kristiansand on the south coast of Norway.
Kristiansand historically spelled Christianssand and Christiansand, is a city and municipality in Norway. It is the fifth largest city in Norway and the municipality is the sixth largest in Norway, with a population of about 90.000.
Tourism is important in Kristiansand, and the summer season is the most popular for tourists. Kristiansand Zoo and Amusement park is the largest zoo in Norway. It receives over 900,000 visitors every year. Markens Street is the main pedestrian street in downtown Kristiansand. Bystranda is a city beach located in Kvadraturen; in addition, Hamresanden beach is the longest beach in Kristiansand. Hamresanden Camping is a popular family camp during the summer season. The city hosts a free concert in downtown Kristiansand once every week in the summer. Outside the city is the industry park Sørlandsparken, which has Sørlandssenteret, the largest mall in Norway.
The Venue is perfect and the support from the Kilden staff absolutely top notch. The group was amazing too. It felt like many became friends during these days on the “school bench”. That is, besides talking sound all day (and evenings in the pub) the part I like the most.
Smaart serves as a platform, based on which the engineers can have fact based discussions, without blurring the communication with “opinion and believe”. The creates a very nice atmosphere.
16 sound engineers from pretty much all over the world came together at Riksteatret to enjoy 3 days of Smaart class. It were three intense days with sound system measurements and a lot of “nerding”, as they call this in Norway.
The atmosphere in the group was amazing. It was pleasure and honour to teach these 3 days at the Riksteatret. I also want to thank all the attendees and of course the Riksteatret crew for being such amazing hosts. – Thomas Züllich
