Trillium Sound Mastering was based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada from 2002 to 2018.
In 2018, the owner moved out of Montreal to live in Saint-Hippolyte, Quebec, a little over an hour north outside the city in the Laurentian Mountains.
Knowing that the studio had a new address, I submitted a correction, changing the address, area and coordinates to the new ones.
It then occurred to me that releases that have relationships linked to mastering, recording or mixing studios appear like this:
“mastered at: Trillium Sound Mastering in La Petite-Patrie, Montreal (city), Quebec, Canada” (as is the case for Agnus Dei).
So changing the location information for this particular studio, since it changed cities, would cause inaccurate information to appear on all existing pre-2018 release relationships.
Is it better to create a second studio entry and use the “Relocated to” relationship to link both studios? So that all pre-2018 credits are linked to the Montreal location and all 2018-present ones are linked to the Saint-Hippolyte location? Saint-Hippolyte is not a suburb of Montreal; those living here would know that it’s far enough to create confusion.
