I’m new here and have just started working with MusicBrainz in the last couple of weeks. I’m very interested in using MusicBrainz as a source to make sense of output of a speech recogniser in the case where the input is something like ‘play muse starlight’, without saying anything that would give us a clue as to which part of the input is artist and which is song title. On the website, doing an indexed-search on Recordings:
, with ‘muse starlight’ as the query, easily solves this requirement. In contrast, an ‘advanced query syntax’ search:
does not give any helpful output, because it is only searching against the recording name and not against artist. My problem is that the WS/2 query that I’d like to use here appears to default to the advanced type, so aligns with the 2nd query above and not the first. Can anyone advise on whether the web query syntax supports the first, ‘Indexed’, version which is rather more useful to me? I don’t want to have to web-scrape if I can avoid it! Many thanks, David James.
