WikiProject Music

Wikidata-music-logo-en.svg

The aim of WikiProject Music is:

  • to define a set of properties that can be used by music infoboxes.
  • to map and import all relevant data that currently is spread in Commons, Wikipedia, and Wikisource.
  • to establish methods to interact with this data from different projects.

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.

  1. 1.0 1.1 AllMusic is a little different in this regard: each track on an album is given a separate song ID, resulting in a large number of duplicates; most popular music tracks do not have composition IDs; and recordings of compositions are given performance IDs (no Wikidata property) instead of song IDs.

Person properties[edit]

In addition to standard properties that apply for all instance of (P31) of human (Q5), these properties can be specific to music-related persons:

Release properties[edit]

These properties may apply to items with instance of (P31) of album (Q482994), extended play (Q169930) or single (Q134556) or music track (Q7302866) (subclasses of release (Q2031291)). Note that some are specific to recorded works ('releases'), not the original compositions themselves.

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

One of the most challenging (and interesting!) tasks is to create and upload a sample audio (or even video) for each music genre.

Add missing properties about musical instruments[edit]

Example of a subclass of instrument: trumpet (Q8338)

SELECT DISTINCT ?instrument
  (SAMPLE(COALESCE(?en_label, ?any_label)) as ?label)
  (GROUP_CONCAT(DISTINCT ?parent_label ; separator=", ") as ?parent)
  (SAMPLE(?inception) as ?inception)
  (GROUP_CONCAT(DISTINCT ?origin_label ; separator=", ") as ?origin)
  (SAMPLE(?image) as ?image)
  (SAMPLE(?audio) as ?audio)
  (SAMPLE(?video) as ?video)
WHERE {

  OPTIONAL{?instrument rdfs:label ?en_label. FILTER(LANG(?en_label) = "en")} OPTIONAL {?instrument rdfs:label ?any_label}

Add missing properties about instances of musical instruments[edit]

Example of an instrument instance: The Organ of the Basilica of St. Martin (Q316302)

SELECT DISTINCT ?instrument
  (SAMPLE(COALESCE(?en_label, ?any_label)) as ?label)
  (GROUP_CONCAT(DISTINCT ?class_label ; separator=", ") as ?class)
  (SAMPLE(?inception) as ?inception)

  (SAMPLE(?video) as ?video)
  (SAMPLE(?coordinates) as ?coordinates)
WHERE {

  OPTIONAL{?instrument rdfs:label ?en_label. FILTER(LANG(?en_label) = "en")} OPTIONAL {?instrument rdfs:label ?any_label}

Musical scales[edit]

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

Responsible: Galaktos (talkcontribslogs), Coyau (talkcontribslogs), but feel free to help out!

Chords[edit]

There are lots of chords. Only some of them have items (e.g. C major (Q55706505), C diminished seventh (Q58233626)). You can import new items for chords using QuickStatements using the data from this data table.
