ICD 2023 Works Cited

[A note from 2023 Eris: As my writing about the Institute for Composer Diversity (unfortunately) continues to expand, I’ve given up and created an entire blog category for these analyses. You can now find all my posts focusing on ICD by clicking here. Posts that mention them in passing but do not focus on their actions specifically will still be tagged, but you’ll need to search “ICD” in the bar at the bottom of the page—and likely scroll a little—to find those. Thanks!]

Hi there! Below are the sources I used for my video and accompanying article on the Institute for Composer Diversity’s March 2023 data leak of marginalized composers’ information, including (estimated) 2,000+ composers whose data it shouldn’t have anymore. These sources are listed in order of appearance in the video, so it’s a slightly unconventionally formatted list. Apologies in advance for the confusion!
