The class will be held at Musikhuset Aarhus in the “Rytmisk sal”, so we have full access to a real world environment. This will allow for a lot of practical use of Smaart.The class is hosted by alfa audio and taught by certified Smaart instructor Thomas Züllich with the help of Fródi Vestergaard Dam of Alfa Audio Denmark. The class will be mainly taught in English with tranlastions by Fródi, should this be needed. Thomas speaks fluent Norwegian as well, so there should not be much of language barrier.
In co-operation with the Møre & Romsdal Fylkeskommune and initiative of Lydkjelleren AS of Ålesund there will be a combined Smaart Operator fundamentals & Application Practicums class held in the first week of October 2021.

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.
