User:Sbontrager/Performance Relationship Type
From MusicBrainz Wiki
- start date
- For performances with a known date this indicates the start date of the performance.
- end date
- For performances with a known date this indicates the end date of the performance.
- This indicates that the recording is of a live performance.
- This indicates that the recording is of a cover performance.
- This indicates that the performance was not of the entire work, e.g. excerpts from, conclusion of, etc.
- This indicates that the lyrics are not relevant for this performance of the work, such that the lyricist would not be credited. Examples include instrumental arrangements, or “beats” from hip-hop songs which may be reused with different lyrics.
- This indicates that the recording was made for the purpose of song development, as a proposal for production or in preparation for a released version. Demos are frequently, but not always, recorded on home-recording equipment.
- Use the live attribute when the performance had an audience at the time it occurred, i.e. it was not prerecorded.
- The partial attribute should only be used where no work exists that represents what was performed. For example, The Planets: Mars, the Bringer of War should not be considered as a partial performance of The Planets, Op. 32, Suite, but simply a performance of The Planets Suite for Orchestra, Op. 32: I. Mars, the Bringer of War. Guidelines on where works should be split can be found at Parts Relationship Type.
- For live recordings the end date is usually the same as the start date. For most live albums from a single concert starting close to midnight and ending early in the morning is OK to just use the start date of the event on all concert recordings.
- Use the instrumental attribute when the recording is an instrumental version of a work that is not instrumental in itself.
- Because the lyrics are important to karaoke versions of a song (the intention is that someone would sing them over the karaoke track), karaoke versions should not be marked with the “instrumental” attribute. Note that in addition to this performance relation, you should link a karaoke track to its original version with the Karaoke Version Relationship Type.
