While working with releases and getting data from ASCAP, i met the following problem.
Here is a composers breakdown for it:
Here is an ASCAP data for the 1st track for example:
Here is IMDB movie crew credits page:
So what we have. Hans-zimmer site shows only 4 persons as composers while ASCAP shows 6 of them as writers. As i understand this is because 4 composer persons (zimmer, fleming, mazzaro and page) listed on IMDB as “music by”, “additional music” and "score produced "; while 2 others (gibson and rubin) as “music editors”.
And so here is the question - should i add only “composers” to work level relationships or add all of them? By my logic since all of them presented in ASCAP - they are all music creators just some of them are composers who actually write the music, while editors modify it later to get the final tracks. In ASCAP they all on the “same level” relationships - work level, but in MB music editors presented only on recording level relationships and not the work ones.
So what will you suggest? Or may be we should create some MB standard/style for this? Or just tell me that i am making this too complex.
