Hi everyone, I’d just like to know how the artists should be credited in a Work. Should their legal names or most common known names/aliases be used? In what script/language?
The reason I’m asking is that last night when I finally converted all my ALAC to FLAC and tried to update the tracks using Picard, I found a lot of the artist credits of composers/lyrists of records relating to Ghibli got changed from Japanese Kanji to Romaji and making the sorting sequence by composers incorrect (e.g. 久石譲[Hisaishi, Joe] becomes Joe Hisaishi[Joe Hisaishi])
I’ve checked the booklets in my albums and most of them listed 久石譲 as “久石譲”, not “Joe Hisaishi”. Most of these changes were done by the same editor somewhere in 2015. I believe she might be entering the French/English versions of the various albums and modified the related Works during the process.
Any thoughts or ideas, please?
