MAESTRO – THE ENNIO MORRICONE ONLINE MAGAZINE ISSUE #5 JULY 2014
—— —— —PRE FA CE
We Live in a Beautiful World
Isn’t it magic that, when you put a CD in any of your CD-players, it will immediately display the
track titles, album title and artist name, i.e. the “metadata” of the album? The record industry and
service providers use 4 different techniques in order to provide this service to you. Sometimes, but
not often, the CD will carry the information itself. You will know if it does by putting it in a device
which is not connected to the internet, depending on whether it will display the data or not. This
technique goes by the (very imaginative) name of “CD-Text”. The metadata is included on the
physical CD during the mastering process. It usually works on a car or home device, but surprisingly
not on a computer.
The other 3 techniques use internet technology and databases, such as Gracenote, AllMusic or
Freedb. These data stores know about most of the tracks that exist, because they have retained what
they call their “fingerprints”. A fingerprint is like a “summary” of the track which can be as short as
a dozen of bytes. The power of this technique is that any such fingerprint is unique throughout all the
existing files. It is used by many bank systems or high-security devices for identification purposes or
to make sure that a file hasn’t been tampered with. However, an audio file is even more demanding,
because depending on how exactly it was mastered, the containing file can be different from one
pressing to another. The Ecstasy of Gold will not have the same fingerprint if you download it from
an internet platform or if you rip it from your old EMI CD or even from your newer GDM CD. Yet
the service has to identify these different files as being Morricone’s The Ecstasy of Gold, and
nothing else. Therefore, the fingerprint of an audio file has to be constructed by making use of more
advanced methods, and will be bigger than that of an ordinary file. But again, the fingerprints are not
included on the CDs, and software that will, upon inserting a CD, read each track, compute its
fingerprint and match it to one of the databases, is still immature, so you won’t benefit from this
second technique any time soon.
But never mind, the third technique will almost always work: it will make use of the data which is at
hand, i.e. basically the number of tracks on the CD and their duration. It is very likely that this
information will be unique across all CDs which exist. And if it is not, the service will propose to
you the several discs which match the data, usually no more than 2 or 3, and you will have to select
one.
If none of this worked, it probably means that you are one of the early listeners of the CD. The
system will give up, and will display default titles such as Track 1, Track 2, etc. If you rip this album
to your hard drive, it will end up having those ugly titles. But there is still the possibility for you to
thuse the 4 technique: you just go on and introduce the information yourself. Most of the players will
then allow you to submit the data to one of the databases in question, so that the next listener will,
thanks to you, see the information appear by means of technique 3 above. But there is a drawback
here too: the 3 databases are competing with each other, and do not share their data. So it might take,
not one, but three good souls before the data will appear on your screen.
But it works because, in the world we live in, information spreads at the speed of light. It is
fascinating to see how fast the data are transmitted by means of modern telecommunications. And
not only that: the quantity of information which gets captured is also ever-growing. This is

frightening as well, because too much information kills the information, quantity often harms
quality, and wrong information travels as fast as right one, sometimes even faster. Most of the data is
uncontrolled.
So even in terms of CD metadata, mistakes exist. But I have to admit that it is far from disastrous,
and most of the time very reliable. For albums in Italian, like most of Morricone’s, one can however
easily tell if the volunteer who contributed the info is a native Italian speaker or not. There will often
be spelling/typing mistakes, and if the contributor is English-speaking, the initial letter of each word
will be capitalized, a practice which should apply to English titles only. It should read The Ecstasy of
Gold alright (of should not be capitalized, because of the capitalization rules which apply), but in
Italian it should be L’estasi dell’oro. It is most annoying to read L’Estasi Dell’Oro, but because of
the dominance of internet practices as opposed to local ones, it is likely that the new generations will
adopt this capitalization for non-English titles. I guess that this is what we call the evolution, which
nobody can stop even when it is unwanted.
But, admitting that there are more important things in life, I will conclude by saying that overall, this
sharing of CD metadata is a very nice example of how collaboration on the internet can provide a
valuable service to the consumer.
I will now let you discover this new issue of “Maestro”, with again – so we hope – topics you will
find interesting. After the Italian flavour of the past issues, this one will have a French savour, with
contributions by François Faucon and Frédéric Durand.
Last but not least, I’d like to underline the publication of the Chinese version of “Maestro”. We had
already mentioned the efforts of Han for translating some of our articles to Chinese for his website
http://morricone.cn/index-eng.htm. Now, with the help of some other Chinese fans, he has come up
with a paper version of “Maestro”. It is 170 pages thick and contains most of the articles which have
been published so far. Other than the number of additional potential readers this will mean, seeing
that our hard work is considered important enough to undergo such a bulky translation endeavour is
very rewarding indeed. Thank you very much to Han and his friends!

New CDs
There were only a small amount of new CDs, compared to previous
periods. (Numerous other CDs or e-albums have been issued but they
featured the same content as the previous editions.)
Professione figlio has been expanded by GDM, lasting now 32
minutes. Interesting but calm music, in an academic chamber style,
