Smaart class at Kilden Concert house Kristiansand, August 2019

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.

I love teaching Smaart and sound system design.
