Silent Memories - Music Therapy with Headsets

Presenting Silent Memories – Innovative Music Therapy

Silent Discos for elderly people living with dementia, sensory impairments, learning difficulties or memory loss. Music therapy is a well established form of treatment for patients, particularly those suffering with dementia. It can help evoke memories and create a deeper sense of coherence and communication, whilst allowing residents to communicate on a different level with care workers and family members.

Here at Silent Noize we’ve recently launched our new company Silent Memories where we offer innovative form of music therapy, whereby rather than playing the music out loud for all to hear, it is played through our wireless headsets directly to the patients. All music is carefully selected by the residents, care workers, family members and our DJs.

Why headsets?

When listening to music through our headsets we have noticed a distinct increase in engagement, animation and stimulation amongst patients. Often the music seems to evoke memories and allows the residents to become completely immersed in the sessions.
Using headsets allows residents to opt in or out of the sessions. The silent disco can be taking place in a communal area and anyone not taking part won’t be distracted by the activity. With a long transmission range it also allows patients with limited mobility to take part in the sessions in their own rooms.

What care homes say:
Briony Sloan – Homecroft, Bradford
“I have been astounded by the positive affects holding a ‘Silent Disco’ has had on my clients. Silent Memories have played within our care home setting and we have been surprised at the way in which the impact of intimate, personal music, especially tailored to clients, has engaged the most static, distant clients and really ‘brought them back to life’, and brought obvious pleasure and joy to many others.”

If you’d like to learn a bit more about the science behind music therapy then this article from Practical Neurology is a great read.

Keeping your patients happy and engaged.

Headsets for Exhibitions - Event Tech Live 2018

Silent Seminars: Be heard!

Back in 2016 we launched Silent Seminars. Since then we’ve had the pleasure of working at some fantastic events across the globe! This autumn we continued our partnership with Event Tech Live as well as providing headsets at a host of events including, The Bahrain Air Show, Future Travel Expo Asia, New York Vet Show, Pulse Europe and The Care Show.

Through our wireless headset technology we are reshaping the way that audio is presented within the conference & exhibition industry. Typically when audiences engage with content at a show the noise pollution from PA’s is an ongoing headache for conference organisers & exhibitors alike, but we have found a great solution.


Benefits of hosting a Silent Seminar:

  • Audience engagement increases due to clear, crisp audio. Unaffected by a busy show floor, your delegates will be able to clearly hear every word wether on the front row or at the back of the theatre.
  • Surrounding exhibitors are unaffected by noise pollution, boosting revenue and making use of every inch of your venue.
  • Multi Channel Headsets now allow for up to 10 channels! Allowing delegates to wonder from zone to zone without having to swap headsets.
  • Save money of costly PA’s. Cabling, staff & noise cancelling curtains are all expensive. Our systems are extremely quick and efficient to set up.
  • Increased revenue streams. Maximise revenue potentials by allowing your clients to brand the headsets.
  • Stream content in multiple languages. Our systems can be used for language translation.

With +25 years in the event industry, we know what it takes to plan and implement a successful event. Click here more information on Silent Seminars or get in touch.

Our philosophy is simple – reducing noise improves communication & engagement.

To ensure best results, WE USE HEADPHONES.

Silent Conference - Event Tech Live 2018

Silent Disco

Off to a flyer!

Happy New Year! The Christmas and New Year period were as manic as always with headsets and silent disco events being run all across the UK. From Aberdeen to Aberystwyth, Brighton to Bristol we had it covered.

This January has been one of the busiest we’ve ever had. Seems our customers are realising that they need to book early to avoid disappointment. As well as Silent Disco’s at the University of Birmingham & a huge one at Home Nightclub in Lincoln we have catered for numerous private parties, nightclubs, a belated Christmas party and lots of conferences and exhibitions.

At the end of the month we were back down at Excel for the Festival of Genomics London. A fantastic event run by the guys at Clarion, one of the biggest exhibition organisers in the world. Our wireless headset system has completely revolutionised the way the show is run with no PA systems in ANY of the main 4 theatres. Just headsets. Engagement and quality of audio significantly improved for all.

Night at the Museum

WOW what a night! Our sold out Silent Disco at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery was incredible.  A massive thanks to everyone who came and partied with us. DJs Nick Morgan, Jerome Prosser and Peachy took to the stage in the impressive Edwardian Tea Rooms – a venue truly like no other and the most unique one we’ve ever put a party on in. I don’t think the staff there had ever seen anything quite like it!
















































The new UV headsets were out in action and got a great response from everyone.














































Our next event with Le Club Fondue is on March 9th @ The Hare & Hounds in Kings Heath and we are in talks with a few unique spaces in Birmingham for our big one next summer so hold tight for news on that one! We’re already booked back in for another amazing 3 channel Silent Disco in Birmingham at the museum on Nov 24th 2018 – stay tuned for details on that one 🙂

Silent Seminars launches in the USA

Here at Silent Noize we’re always looking to diversify our products and expand into new markets and with our sister company Silent Seminars that is exactly what we’ve been doing! We now have a fantastic 24 channel headphone system available to help combat noise pollution issues in busy conference & exhibition venues.

“Our philosophy is simple – reducing noise 

improves communication & engagement. 

To ensure the best results, we use headphones. 

October was an incredibly proud month for us as we launched Silent Seminars in the USA @ The Festival of Genomics Boston. An event we did in London earlier in the year, working for some forward thinking conference organisers at Clarion, we were lucky enough to be invited to do the American leg of the show due to the success in London.

The conference is made up of 3 main presentation areas which previously used the traditional PA speaker set up to allow the delegates to hear the live seminars and presentations that take place throughout the conference. The problem was that all over the venue there were noise clashes. Each presentation had to be timed around the one next door to ensure that people could hear the material being presented and the exhibitors on the show floor were not disturbed. That is until we came along, stripped out the PA systems and replaced them with our pioneering Slient Conference headsets!

The feedback has been phenomenal and we’re already booked in to do the Festival of Genomics, London 2018. We’re looking forward to taking the USA by storm next year.

Nov sees us shortlisted for 2 awards at the Event Technology Awards in London so we’ve got everything crossed for that one. Stay tuned 🙂

Fire Breathing at Silent Noize Events

Tis The Season!

Here at Silent Noize Events we’re happy that it’s officially the season to be Jolly! This weekend we saw one of BCU’s biggest union parties ever with almost 800 students queuing up to grab their SilentNoize headphones to party the night away with. We’re already taking bookings for May Ball events next year as well as graduations and society celebrations. So if you’re planning you’re next university affair and looking for popular quirky ideas to make your party stand out, we’re here to provide you with the best quality silent disco, awesome DJs, spectacular lighting and other top quality disco equipment!

We were also very lucky to have been asked to get involved in Smirnoff’s Bristol #queuethemusic at PRYZM last Saturday. After getting to know their crowd and asking some vital questions about the clubbers experience, it became quite apparent that queuing in the cold to get into a club wasn’t much fun, so Smirnoff and a wonderful production company Helix decided they would entertain a queue of over 200 people with some of our SilentNoize headphones… what an amazing idea!

We have worked with quite a few big companies over the last 5 years and we are constantly surprised at some of the great ideas people have conjured up to help market their products. The night also included dancers, fire breathing dancers, top DJ complete with his smirnoff truck, lighting and confetti cannons! If you’re looking for ideas to market your product why not draw in your crowd with a silent disco? We can also brand our headphones with your company logo, hash tags and tag-lines too for all of your social media, marketing communication needs.

10 Reasons Why A Silent Disco Wedding Is The Answer

If you are looking for your wedding to stand out, want a memorable experience for you and your guests or you simply love to be entertained in style then a Silent Disco could be the perfect way to celebrate your big day.

Silent Weddings

As the original silent disco equipment hire company, Silent Noize, an events company based in Birmingham and operating throughout the UK, specialise in events organization and the ever growing popular phenomenon of the silent party. This year they have been focusing on Wedding entertainment and celebrations.

Silent Noize discuss their top reasons as to why a Silent Disco  wedding is fast becoming the premier way to bring people together, if not the answer to your wedding restrictions and woes.

1.Family and bonding
Silent Noize can be for everyone. Kids, parents, friends, even the Grandparents love our silent discos. Silent Noize has a nack for bringing people together and what better way to join two new families together.

2. Location
The biggest advantage of a silent disco is that it can take place virtually anywhere. There is no noise pollution as no actual music is being transmitted through speakers. Silent Noize have held silent discos in function halls, hotels, restaurants, warehouses, gardens, forests, festivals as well as nightclubs, pubs, bars and house parties.

3. Be different
Everyone wants their wedding to stand out. Silent discos are a great device for treating your guests to top entertainment. We’ve also seen some exceptional locations with Silent Noize since we began the company, some people even like to mix traditional settings with their modern silent disco theme. The limits truly are endless.

4. Music choice
So the kids want to listen to all the pop classics, they go gaga fo Lady Gaga or dippy for 1D… problem is dad would rather rock out to some Queen or the bride just fancies pulling off a headspin to some Beastie Boys. Unfortunately you can’t please everyone with your music choice at a wedding. You can however, cover the majority with a three channel silent disco headset! Silent Noize are currently one of the only Silent Disco companies in the UK to have three different channels available, meaning you can have a DJ for one and iPod/mp3/laptop/tablet/phone playlist for the other channels. Even Nan would be impressed!

5. Time and noise restraints
We find that with many weddings the party has to end early due to noise complaints and sound restraints of the building or area. With Silent Noise silent discos you can carry on the celebrations into the wee hours of the morning if you wish to. If you want a totally unique and original party however large or small Silent Noize will make it a night to remember.

6. License restrictions
Yet again Silent Discos come to the rescue when it comes to those pesky PRS licenses, not all venues or properties have the correct license to broadcast music, however a silent disco is completely legal when it comes to music law. You wont have PC Plod turning up at your party regarding music law.

7. No more shouting
Need a break from the music? The common misconception about Silent Discos is that they are unsociable which is untrue, in fact they are the complete opposite. There’s no need to leave the room for a bit of peace and quiet or pleasant conversation. Simply remove your headphones and chat away to your friends & family. There’s no need to waste energy shouting over music any more because the silence is golden!



8. Wireless fun and long distance
The party doesn’t stop once you step outside the dance floor. Silent Disco headphones are completely wireless and they can still pick up signals from over 100 metres away. You can quite happily carry on to the bar, toilet or outdoors still twerking, shaking and hopping.

9. Hilarious
There’s probably nothing funnier than watching a group of people singing and dancing to different style of music at the same time. If you’ve ever experienced a silent disco before, you will have been lucky enough to experience this. Though if you’re feeling left out, Silent Noize headphones now have coloured lights to indicate to others which channel you are listening to, this way you and your friends can sync up channels… and dance routines of course.

10. Memorable
Let’s face it, if you have a silent disco wedding it will be far from forgettable. Your wedding will most likely stand out from all the other weddings your guests have been to in their lifetime and who wouldn’t want that?!

Silent Noize – The Whole Package: Silent Noize don’t just provide silent disco equipment. Everyone has an idea of how they want their wedding but not everyone has the time to sit down, source equipment, DJ’s, Lighting and Decks. Silent Noize can cater for all of this, hassle free with affordable prices.  With over 3000, top of the range, 3 channel wireless headsets available for hire along with a large roster of professional DJs, photographers, the finest DJ equipment, lighting, smoke machines and more. Also working closely with a number of marquee, staging and lighting hire companies so anything you need for your event, Silent Noize can provide for you.

So why not make your special day one to remember by having a Silent Disco at the reception? You can either switch the speakers over to the headphones to offer your family and friends something different for the end of the night, or go the whole hog and have a completely silent party. It’s the way forward!
