2017 Line up 
A series of roundtable discussions to cover everything you need to know about getting a recording contract, publishing deal, a start on the live touring circuit and synchronisation.
UPDATE – We’re really pleased to announce that Heather Kreamer (Create Advertising) will be our special guest at SensoriaPro and taking part in the roundtable discussions to give her expert advice about music synch. Delighted also to welcome Richard Brown, Relationship Manager, Music at Arts Council England, who will lead a roundtable discussion on funding for musicians and music projects. Plus Barry Dallman (North of England Regional Officer, Musicians’ Union) discussing everything contractual and Tony Morley (Leaf Label) looking at the best ways to approach and work with record labels.


Can animals rock to rhythm or recognise a melody? Naturalist and presenter Chris Packham and internationally acclaimed musician and composer Nitin Sawhney believe some can. We’re delighted to welcome them both to SensoriaPro where they will discuss their use of new research, examining how and why certain animals respond to music, that resulted in Nitin’s compositions performed by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

GEOFF BARROW in conversation
