Default Submissions - Artist Roles

Time to plan the expansion of artist roles!

Currently we have:
  • Composer
  • Arranger
  • Performer
  • Lyricist
  • SFX Artist
  • Programmer
  • Mastering Engineer
  • Mixing Engineer
  • Recording Engineer

I'm planning to add sub-roles, which may look like the following. Yes, most are based on actual credits I've seen:
  • Composer
  • Arranger
    • Music Arrangement
    • Strings Arrangement
    • Vocal Arrangement
    • Chorus Arrangement
    • Remix
  • Vocalist
    • Vocal
    • Chorus
    • Voice (includes Talk?)
    • Rap
    • Scream (Wikipedia lists it as "death growl")
  • Instrumentalist
    • (freetext field for whatever musical instrument)
  • Lyricist
    • Lyrics
    • Lyrics Translation
  • Audio Engineer
    • Mastering Engineer
    • Mixing Engineer
    • Recording Engineer
  • SFX Artist
  • Programmer
    • Audio Programming
    • Synthesizer Programming

Some other possible technical roles (most probably will consist of unlinked artists):
  • Conductor
  • Producer
  • Graphic Artist
    • Package Illustrator
    • Package Designer
    • Calligrapher


Violent objections welcome!
