Greetings. Have a question about this artist(s) and should they be merged or not:
Personally i know nothing about artist above - i met it while adding/editing pure production music album (where in 99% cases only composer credits),
TBH i always dont completely understand MB system about artist “projects” and their uniqueness. To me its quite simple - since i am often working with the information from PRO units (ASCAP, BMI, etc.), every artist almost always is credited under its legal name there, so there is no difference how many aliases or “projects” it has - credits always for its legal name. So why not to implement similar system here? Lets say we would have only one (unique) artist record under its full legal name (so all work credits on work relationship would be under full legal name too), but on track list and/or recordings level it could be under any alias/name + also all this aliases would be in one place (aliases tab) for this artist.
May be i still (as i said) dont get something, but for now i see at least the following problem - having several MB artist ids for one artist (as entity) would mean different artists in music player for example. So if one track is credited (at composer level) as “AB” and other - as "“AC” the player will show them as 2 different composers, while defacto this is the same person with different aliases (on recording level).
