Genre – MusicBrainz Wiki

This Genre – MusicBrainz Wiki provides a fascinating glimpse of the real-world struggle between genre “in practice” and genre “conceived of as Aristotelean categorisation.” I especially like this entry from the MusicBrainz Summit #12: “Genres: We really need them. The world wants us to have them. How do we get there?” And a little later in the discussion: “Locations + (maybe) Events (MBS-799). We don’t *need* them like we do genres but they would be nice.”

Genre is indespinsible.
Genre is necessary.
