Fear of music

Toni Dimitrov - cultural producer and cultural explorer, radio host and radio activist, philosopher and communicologist, poet and mountain climber... but also sound artist, dj, designer, organizer, label owner, based in Skopje, Macedonia.

‘Fear of Music’ is a conceptual sound art installation, a piece of sound that asks important questions related to contemporary art and is observing the relation between the fine art and the sound art.
