Kane Finnie 

BA [Hons] Creative Music Production

Hello! My name is Kane, and I am a 22-year-old music producer based in Dublin. I specialise in production on a client-to-client basis. I have previously done work in composition, songwriting, mixing, and mastering. I recently began my own production company with my business partner and fellow student, Mark Butler. Over the last 4 years, I have gained skills that have allowed me to further my career to new heights I could not imagine previously. In the future, I want to keep reaching more creative heights.

Project Description

This project sought to understand how to creatively fulfil clients as a music producer, and how to "get the best" out of them in order to further the results of a collaboration.

Project Objectives

The objectives of this project were to produce a five song EP with a band, along with some general research on how to utilise another person's creativity within a collaboration.

Project Outcomes

Unfortunately, the project did not go to plan. Due to unforeseen circumstances and general misbehaviour on the client's part, only two songs were completed out of the five originally planned. A pivot was done in the research to then understand what went wrong, why it went wrong, and what could be learned from the situation.

Thesis Title

How Does the Role of a Producer Contribute to and Shape the Perception of Creativity in the Context of Music Production?
