Music Examples

An attempt to gather together examples of pages describing, linking to, or referring to music.

The Problem

Publishers of audio files annotate them with visible data about the audio, so users know who they're from and whether or not they want the files.

A format that semantically marked up existing info about audio would allow software such as a CD playing program to parse and index that information from the respective web page (c/f CDDB).

Introduction

Examples of what people actually publish on the Web when discussing, linking to and referring to musical artists and their works. This is focused predominantly on the descriptions of artists and their releases. Track information is better covered in the more general media-info-examples.

For the purposes of this discussion "artist" refers to the performing artist. That is, the individual or group that performed on a particular sound recording rather than the writer or composer of a song (in many cases, they're one in the same). This distinction has to do with the association between performers and particular sound recordings and the nuts and bolts of music copyright-- it's in no way an assertion about the definition of artistry.

Releases refer to collections sound recordings that are packaged together and made available together. Singles, EPs and albums would all be releases.

Emphasis on Practical, Simple, and Minimal

Since all previous known attempts at this problem area have ended up quite complex and over-designed, this attempt will place simplicity and minimalism first and foremost.

Thus for now, this document is deliberately restricted to examples that are:

Any examples added which do not conform to these requirements will be deleted.

Any generic analysis will also be deleted. Analysis before examples is premature. Once there are sufficient media-info-examples, and hopefully a simple/clean listing of media-info-formats, we'll hopefully start a media-info-brainstorming page to do aggregate analysis of the examples.

Music Journalism

Music Blogs

Artist pages

Particularly, pages which provide information about performing artists.

Record Label pages

Label sites (like many artist sites) tend to not be the best examples of minimal, semantic mark up. They are, nonetheless, important and prevalent enough to list.

Release Sites

Pages and/or small sites devoted to a specific release by an artist. These generally include release descriptions, track listings and album art. They may have links to downloadable or streamable media as well. Another note: artist bios are, in some cases, release specific-- from a label perspective they are often re-written every time an active artist has a new major release.
