Adventurous Music is a non-profit artist collective that has evolved from some different other artist groups around the beginning of the 21st century. By then, these artists had already been organizing audio-visual events in outstanding locations such as monuments, galleries, and museums as well as in clubs, bars, and cafes, and they continue to do so.
Since 2013, Adventurous Music has also created a bi-monthly podcast featuring music by artists and on labels we enjoy.
In 2019, we started our own non-profit micro-label focusing on the release of experimental electronic music. As a format, we exclusively chose limited printed goods (such as cards and books in small editions of < 100) that include visual artwork and a download code for the music.
