Properties[edit]

Overview[edit]

Note that most items do not yet use such a specific ontology as described in this table. In particular, items about songs are likely to be about both the composition and track; items about singles are likely to conflate the single release and the track; and items about albums may also include identifiers for individual versions of the album.

  • Artists are grouped into humans, fictional characters and ensembles (musical groups). Ensembles should have one or more members (real or fictional).
  • Compositions comprise the abstract musical creative works which form the basis for performances and audio recordings/tracks.
  • Tracks comprise individual audio and video entities, such as tracks on a CD and music videos.
  • Releases comprise any publications of recorded audio or video, such as studio albums, compilation albums, EPs, mixtapes and singles. These may have editions, particular versions which differ in some way. Releases usually contain one or more tracks.
  • Labels comprise the brands and companies directly associated with releases.

If a Wikipedia article is about a single with only one track, or mainly discusses one track of that single, then it should be connected to the item about the composition. Otherwise, it should be connected to the item about the release.

  1. Spotify also has Spotify songwriter ID (P8347) for songwriters, though currently this data is in beta and only available for a limited number of songwriters.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Currently disabled indefintely on the Discogs site pending further development.
  3. 3.0 3.1 AllMusic is a little different in this regard: in popular music, each track (of each release) is given a separate AllMusic song ID (P1730); outside popular music, AllMusic performance ID (P6306) is used instead, and may refer to multiple tracks. Performances and songs will often have many duplicates. Most popular music tracks do not have composition IDs; track credits are attached to album releases.
  4. Tracks on Spotify are usually attached to an ISRC (P1243), and it is possible to search for Spotify tracks by ISRC.

Composition properties[edit]

These properties may apply to some items with instance of (P31) of musical work (Q2188189) or its subclasses, like song (Q7366), concerto (Q9748), composed musical work (Q207628), etc. Note that these items are the work itself, not recorded versions of the work.

In FRBR terms, we could say these are properties of a work or expression.

In FRBR terms, we could say these are properties of a manifestation. An item wouldn't normally be worth of an entry in Wikidata.

Musical scales[edit]

We want to create items for musical scales. See C major scale (Q20640627) for an example. has part(s) (P527) statements should be moved from the corresponding tonality (here: C major (Q1022293)) to the scale.
