A project will commonly contain an album along with the tracks from that album.
Projects are assembled automatically using our metadata tool, called MDM – Master Data Management.
MDM matches album UPCs together on an artist/title basis. When a new UPC is created in R2, MDM will do one of two things:
- If a project already exists for that artist/title combination, MDM will match the new UPC to the existing album project.
- If a project does not already exist for that artist/title combination, MDM will create a new project for that album.
Similarly, MDM groups track ISRCs together on an artist/title basis.
While the initial grouping of projects is done automatically, the Global Data & Analytics team can make changes including renaming projects, combining projects, moving tracks between projects, etc. Please emailwith any such requests.
