Primer

This page describes the automatic conversions that will take place for ARs on update to NGS. This only applies to these updates – some of these may also end up having other acceptable entity pairings for new relationships created after NGS; that's not to be covered here. The last section is an initial list of Work-Work ARs to be created, some of them to replace/correct ARs in the preceding lists.

The goal at this time is to resolve any outstanding issues that remain.

Track-Track

Note: Track-Track ARs might become either Recording-Recording, or Recording-Work, or Work-Work (and maybe also Work-Recording).

AR Type     Now         NGS         Comment    
Compilation Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording Designates that a single entity (i.e. not more than one recording/work) draws from multiple entities. Thus: a specific Recording from several Recordings; it won't be Works in this case, because that would be a Medley (at least for conversion to NGS). In converting data, will be converted to a Recording-Recording AR, since Work-Work is more likely to be Medley.
Cover Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
DJ Mix Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Earliest Release Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording Deprecated AR Type: such recordings should be merged (an automatic merge is attempted during NGS conversion)
Karaoke Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Mash-up Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Medley Relationship Type Track-Track Work-Work See discussion below
Other Version Relationship Type Track-Track Work-Work Should now just mean "same Work"; should be merged - deprecated. Many of these situations will need to make new Work-Work ARs (see section below)

Note: merge should be manual, not automatic during NGS conversion because this AR type is a bit fuzzy.

Remaster Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Remix Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Samples Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording Sampling refers to actual audio data, hence recording for the source. The choice of specific recording to sample from wouldn't change the work (i.e. two Recordings which each sample a different Recording could still be the same Work; hence Recording for the sampling entity.

Medley Relationship Type Discussion

Medley requires a new performance, according to Mix Terminology, so the audio data is not the same -- hence should be Work-level.

Ok, but do we consider that a medley is a new work? If we don't, this AR can become a Recording-Work AR linking the medley recording to each performed Work. Murdos 22:37, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

New Work-Work ARs to Create

AR Type     Comment    
Re-arranged version For a re-arranged version of the same Work. See http://test.musicbrainz.org/work/5aab016c-f3e8-48aa-86e0-abd221c7b501/relationships versus http://test.musicbrainz.org/work/5aaff0c1-73d0-4593-9e14-dacb925c6532/relationships for our example of this
