Project Plan Post 1 of 7: Aims, Objectives and Final Output(s) of the project

The MusicBrainz user community has created a metadatabase describing over 9 million musical recordings, which is used by media players and web services such as the BBC's /music. The data is structured but not linked. Part of this data has been made available on the semantic web in the past, but it lacks recent extensions and updates, as it was not based on a sustainable model. With the release of MusicBrainz' Next Generation Schema (June 2010, beta 2), it is an appropriate time to map the new metadata to RDF and publish the Linked Data directly from the MusicBrainz website. This data will be linked to music metadata on the semantic web (e.g. DBpedia, BBC), and exposed via a SPARQL endpoint. We will engage with end users in the Music and Music Informatics fields, providing tutorial materials and workshops to encourage uptake of project outputs. We will investigate and report on major issues arising in the project, such as scalability, provenance and sustainability.

NGS to RDF mappings proposals page

We are starting a wiki page to collect proposals for mappings of NGS to RDF. A set of proposed entity mappings is already there. Comments and other ideas are most welcome!

LinkedBrainz site launch

We around proud to announce the launch of the LinkedBrainz website. This site will provide information and updates related to the LinkedBrainz - a JISC-funded project to provide MusicBrainz Next Generation Schema as Linked Data. More details about the project can be found on the about page and the MusicBrainz wiki page. And of course more details and news related to the project will be published right here.
