|I live in Vancouver, Canada. Our family has a collection of some 500 CDs which are gradually being ripped, encoded, and tagged. Most are opera and classical, but there are other genres in there too.... I really care about having accurate metadata on my opera tracks, because that's an important part of having it show up well in the music players.|
What I'm seized of at MusicBrainz
- Get good metadata tags for the CD collection I'm ripping.
- Figure out how enter metadata for my CD collection efficiently.
- Improving documentation of existing features. Write howto documents recording what I've learned.
- Maybe write some better data entry UIs or bots to systematically clean up existing data.
- Look at the ObjectModel and notions like work (composition) as applicable to ClassicalMusic, OperaMusic and MusicalTheatre.
- Figure out what MusicBrainz is trying to be: "This site is intended to be a free, on-line encyclopedia of music information." (GeneralFAQ), but that still leaves me with questions.
- Is MB attempting to build a database of true facts and relationships about music separate from particular recordings, and/or a database of facts and relationships about recordings, and/or a service that produces useful metadata tags for digital music files?
