What is Adventuress?
One of my favorite quotes about music (and really, all artistic forms) is by the writer James Baldwin from his short story called “Sonny’s Blues”. It’s this passage:
“All I know about music is that not many people ever really hear it. And even then, on the rare occasions when something opens within, and the music enters, what we mainly hear, or hear corroborated, are personal, private, vanishing evocations.
But the man who creates the music is hearing something else, is dealing with the roar rising from the void and imposing order on it as it hits the air. What is evoked in him, then, is of another order, more terrible because it has no words, and triumphant, too, for that same reason. And his triumph, when he triumphs, is ours.”
I remember when I read that passage for the first time, I started to cry because it so perfectly described the power of music and all art to transcend physical reality. Having experienced this “roar” since I was four years old when I first started to play piano and again seven years ago when photography found me and I found I couldn’t live without the passion I feel for it, it’s always been so difficult to explain the freeing release of sharing such passion with an audience.
And so, I have always dreamt about one day combining all three of the things I love dearly together but sometimes dreams take a little bit of time to materialize.
Enter Daria Musk, my best friend and one of the most inspiring and talented musicians I know. We met a few years back and our careers have both taken us on extraordinary journeys separately. Through it all we have always confided in each other about our art, our careers, our dreams.
What better way to make a dream materialize than to join together and create something new and fresh in the world of travel?
And so Adventuress is dream matter materialized.
So, What is Adventuress Exactly?
Daria and I will be traveling the world collecting sights and sounds and then remixing all of those wonderful things into their own art in the form of short-form videos, still photography, beautiful music, and so much more!
You can follow along here on this site (we have maps, we will be posting sounds and photos, gifs, video).
You can also follow us on our Adventuress YouTube Channel and on our socials too! (all linked above)
And when we get back from each journey, we will also be creating multimedia stories so you can experience the sights and sounds of each place all mapped out so you can even follow in our footsteps at some point! Wouldn't that be awesome?
Our first journey is France!!!
Cannot wait to share all of it with you!
