To provide students of the Norwegian Academy of Music with a top-notch education and music-listening experience, LydRommet recently upgraded the existing JBL sound reinforcement system in the school’s Linderman Hall with next-generation JBL VTX A8 line array speakers.
Located in Oslo, the Norwegian Academy of Music (NMH) is the largest university-level music conservatory in Norway. Many of Norway’s top musicians received their education from NMH’s diverse curriculum of genres, ranging from church and classical music to jazz and folk music.
Officially founded in 1973, NMH has academic origins dating back to 1883, when Ludvig Mathias Lindeman and his son Peter Brynie Lindeman founded a historic school for organists.
Named in honour of Lindeman’s legacy, Lindeman Hall is the Academy’s main concert hall, with a seating capacity for 365 audience members. With a superior acoustic design and a stage big enough for a full symphony orchestra, Lindeman Hall is an ideal performance venue for large acoustic ensembles, amplified jazz bands, chamber orchestras and solo performers alike.
In keeping with the Academy’s dedication to supporting students’ musical growth with the latest technology, NMH turned to Norway-based Harman distributor LydRommet to upgrade Lindeman Hall’s existing sound system.
To deliver wide and balanced coverage for a diverse range of concerts and genres, LydRommet installed a modern JBL VTX live sound reinforcement solution consisting of VTX A8 line array speakers.
“NMH is the top music university in Norway, and they strive to offer the best in terms of education and equipment alike,” said Jan-Stefan Hansen, director of pro audio sales, LydRommet.
“To complement the beautiful acoustic design of Lindeman Hall, we implemented JBL VTX A8 speakers. The coverage of the VTX A8 speakers is perfect for the size of the hall, and its flat frequency response sounds very natural, yielding versatility for different music styles.”
