The Daffodil Perspective is always looking for new music to feature on the show. I welcome recordings from artists that share my values of diversity, inclusion, gender equality, racial equity and de-centring whiteness in classical music.
The Daffodil Perspective accepts submissions of individual pieces for potential inclusion on the show from female black and minority ethnic/BIPOC composers
The Daffodil Perspective also accepts submissions of individual pieces from BIPOC musicians and conductors performing music by female BIPOC composers only.
Priority is given to black, brown and indigenous women.
The Daffodil Perspective does not accept music submissions from white composers, BIPOC male composers or white musicians of any gender.
At The Daffodil Perspective I am excited to hear about new (and older) albums of classical music to showcase on the show in the Album Of The Week section.
Single Composer Albums
The Daffodil Perspective accepts single composer album submissions of music by:
Black and minority ethnic women composers (BIPOC/Women composers of colour)
Priority is given to black, brown and indigenous women composers.
The Daffodil Perspective does not accept single composer album submissions from white composers of any gender or BIPOC male composers.
Various Composer Albums
Albums must include at least 40% music by female composers.
Albums must include at least 1 woman composer of colour.
The Daffodil Perspective accepts various composer album submissions, that conform to the rules above, from:
Black and minority ethnic musicians/BIPOC/musicians of colour.
Chamber ensembles containing at least one black or minority ethnic/BIPOC member
Black and minority ethnic conductors/BIPOC/conductors of colour
Priority is given to women, particularly black, brown and indigenous women.
The Daffodil Perspective does not accept various composer album submissions from white composers, white musicians or all white ensembles of any gender.
All Types of Recording Accepted
Commercial, concert recordings, studio, live performance, rehearsal, practice, bedroom, Soundcloud, Audacity, whatever the medium or audience I want to hear it. The quality will be reviewed but as long as it’s decent-ish I’ll consider it for inclusion.
The Daffodil Perspective plays 50% women composers and 50% people of colour (with gender parity) on every show. White composers will continue to be featured on the show in these proportions. The new policy is in place to prioritise women of colour, showcasing them, championing them, promoting them after the horrific marginalisation and internalised racism of the past 18 months on this show
