Fear Drop

Fear Drop is a French paper journal (with an online supplement) founded by Denis Boyer in 1993, devoted to various forms of musical experimentation, mostly located in the grey zone, between abstraction and figuration, revolving around the reflection, description and translation of informal music. Each issue is accompanied by a CD compilation of previously unreleased tracks, most of which are composed for the occasion.
