Un-Convention

FORWARD THINKING GLOBAL MUSIC INDUSTRY CONFERENCE

Important now with an ever-changing landscape Un-Convention continue their honest commentary on the global music industry. Founded in Manchester with events taking place across the globe, they provide a refreshing insight and multiple perspectives on the industry through their unique format merging conferencing, live Q+A, panel discussions and live performances.

Neuron’s working relationship with Un-Convention started nearly a decade ago, and in their latest hometown events UNCON100 and 105 in March of 2019 and 2020 respectively, they found a new home at one of our most loved venues, the iconic Victorian Theatre, NIAMOS in Hulme.

We worked with Neuron Pro Audio on our latest event in Manchester and were really impressed. The event was a conference by day, with live music performances in the evenings, for which they installed a full PA and lighting rig. From the first site meeting until the final load out everything ran seemlessly and we had wonderful feedback from our speakers, aritsts and audiences regarding the sound and visual impact of the event. We certainly have no hesitation in recommending them, and look forward to working with them again in the future. JEFF THOMSON - FOUNDER

Supplying a full production of sound, lighting and projections for this diverse event is no problem for our skilled show operators. We designed all the tech to be multi-functional for the conference through the day into the evening, where live performances featured the likes of Badly Drawn Boy and The Futureheads. With minimal changeover times between the daytime and evening sessions, it was essential to have systems in place that worked well for both mediums. Wireless lapel microphone systems for the panel talks during the day were quickly swapped for handheld microphones tuned to the same frequencies for the musical performances. Lighting and projections throughout the day were kept minimal, highlighting the architectural features of the theatre with additional programming in place to quickly switch the atmosphere when the evening party began.
