Music Examples

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

The Problem

What is the purpose of this exploration?

Participants

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 more aptly covered in the more general media-info-examples.

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.
