Highlights from the August release of RDA Toolkit
RDA has always allowed use of “another concise term” (RDA I.1) as a relationship designator if there is no sufficiently specific term on the included lists, but I’m pleased to see so many new ones being added to that official list. For example, this month:
Relationship Designators for Creators
remix artist – A person, family, or corporate body responsible for creating an audio work by manipulating, recombining, mixing, and reproducing previously recorded sounds. Remixing activities that do not substantially change the nature and content of the original work, and mixing recorded tracks together to appear as one continuous track are excluded. See also DJ; mixing engineer.
Relationship Designators for Contributors
DJ – A person, family, or corporate body who mixes recorded tracks together during a live performance or in a recording studio to appear as one continuous track. Remixing activities that substantially change the nature and content of the original work, resulting in a new work, and mixing and assembling the multiple tracks of a recording are excluded. See also mixing engineer, remix artist.
dubbing director – A person, family, or corporate body responsible for the general management and supervision of the process of adding new dialogue or other sounds to complete the sound track for an expression.
music programmer – A person, family, or corporate body contributing to an expression of a musical work by using electronic audio devices and/or computer software to generate sounds. The creation of a new musical work is excluded. See also composer.
