Recordings Metadata Meaning

The Beginning:

Three major steps


Being aware of information we do have. However, it is only
information, without any meaning if we do not give it a
meaning.

Give it a meaning!


To gather similar types of meanings and create a higher
system, which could be beneficial to one who seeks the
information.

Reorganizing and gathering!


Foresee every single chance to help the seeker to find what he
is looking for.

Think ahead of time!


A bit of historical notices… Beware, interesting!




…secret world of signs stored on each gramophone record,
beyond the sound itself, reveals additional meaning and
information, just as guidelines to finding out its history

Recording speed


Are 78 rpm records REALLY that fast?


60 to 90 rpm 78 revolutions (or rotations) per minute


It depends on:


publishing house and its technical equipage


period of recording


used stylus and many other things


And
many

other things such as…




initials and unresolved pseudonyms

Odeon



bibliographic and other standards do not cooperate on so many
levels, and from some kind of frustration which aroused in
observing that there is no way to translate records from our
COBISS database in something useful, Ivan and I decided to take
a journey called data extraction
