Ciara Adamson 

BA [Hons] Creative Music Production

My name is Ciara Adamson and I'm a 22 year old musician striving for continual enhancement in knowledge and creativity. I have always loved music and have had a huge interest in the musical world; I play 5 instruments and sing, write and produce my own music and hopefully sometime soon perform in big venues.

The Comparison of Solo vs Collaborative work

This project took a deep dive into the relationship between collaborative projects and the productivity of these environments. Comparing the productivity, creativity and motivation of a collaborative setting to that of a solo setting while analysing the amount of work that was done within sessions and also throughout the entire project. While working on music alongside another musician is it easier and more inciting to get work done?

How Collaboration affects Productivity, Creativity and Motivation

My thesis describes the entirety of the research, writing, recording, production and analysis process of the project. Gives in depth detail and comparison about the difference in productivity, creativity and motivation between solo and collaborative writing.
