An update on musical Leviathan progress, mostly for my own interest and later retrieval, but with not a little bearing upon the social nature of the enterprise. The project is sort of background activity, something I think about amongst other interests and activities like fence-building and being Designated Shopper for my sister’s household, so progress consists of little steps and not great strides.
I started looking again at MusicBrainz and (instead of reading the documentation) fell immediately into messing about with making an entry for a record in my collection that seemed to be missing from the database: Paddy Keenan’s 1975 Gael-Linn release. No big deal, but one has to experiment with things to gauge what their importance might be. This morning, just 12 hours or so later, I had email indicating that somebody had found my addition and edited it to link to the original liner notes (by Seamus Ennis) on Paddy Keenan’s site, which include mp3s for a couple of the tunes. There’s also a new link to the Wikipedia page on Paddy Keenan. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised to find that I’ve wandered into an active community, though blundered is more the style of thing.
