How to Credit "Interpolations"

The documentation has it listed but I cant find anywhere on a recording nor a work to link an interpolation?

Is this currently supported?

There’s a ticket to add this…


For me, as there is no French translation, it confuses me a little between sampling, version of, is the basis for and this interpolation. :thinking:

Extra documentation efforts or good examples will surely help. :slight_smile:

Here’s how SOCAN defines it in french and english:

Interpolated Works (english) (french)

Samples (english) (french)

Thanks. :slight_smile:
Did you understand? :wink:
The ŒUVRES INTERPOLÉES definition makes it sound like something between sampling of non-musical work and the is based on we already have. :confused:

When I look at @Jorgosch’s* list of interpolated songs, does it mean then that it’s like our existing is based on but it’s for cases where it’s not aknowledged, not credited, maybe?
Like when there is a part of famous Bach riff in rock instrumental or guitar solo, etc.?

* What? @Deleted_Editor_1801019?

Is there any update on this?
Still confused how to credit “contains an interpolation of…” properly

If I’m not mistaken, interpolation is when a piece of a track or work is snipped and placed in the middle of another track, full interruption.

And so, it is not based on another track, it interpolates between both works.

Am I right?

As far as I know an interpolation is when you reproduce/replay a work (lyrics, music) replayed sample so to speak - not a direct sample


Ah, I see.

First there’s the original work,
Then there’s a micro-cover of sorts, of the relevant portion,
Then there’s the final song which uses this micro cover as a sample.

Resurrecting this quickly.

So we have some new work to work relationships that might solve this but I’m unsure what to use when.

Here are the three relationship types:

In my opinion “based upon” still would work for most interpolations as the interpolation will likely make up the majority of the song, if for some reason the interpolation was a short element in the song then I’d use musicial quotation. I’d probably never use revision of, keeping that for things such as translations, or later re-releases where the musical structure is considerably different (happens a lot in EDM, see Toca’s Miracle vs Toca’s Miracle 2008)
