Black Market Brains - The Erotic Fixations Of Irina

The first YouTube release for BLACK MARKET BRAINS had to be Jess Franco related of course.  My sonic soup is made up of industrial and ambient tones mixed to... my tastes. Instruments include Korg Volca Drum and Beats and the Arturia Minifreak on keys.  Only 900 plus videos to make now...

Jess Franco's INCUBUS...a sonic tribute!

Anyone that reads this blog will see that Jess Franco is one of my favorite subjects. Relentless in his film making and inspiration to all artists I would hope.  Here is a tribute to his ONE SHOT PRODUCTIONS film, INCUBUS. Made with a Volca Beats and Drum and Arturia's MicroFreak and MiniFreak.  And love. A lot of love!

Vortex Of Eros - A Tribute To European Trash Cinema

Tunes to make your head spin with trash film connections. All performed live using three Arturia Microfreaks clocked to a single IK Multimedia UnoDrum.  From ambient textures of dark sex to pulsing club hits... evoking a 1980s Giallo we never had!  All music by me as BLACK MARKET BRAINS.

Tenebre And Malediction - A sonic meditation on Jess Franco

Here at TOMB IT MAY CONCERN there is a lot of material about Jess Franco. His films NEVER leave my imagination and so... a sonic tribute to my favorite sequence and English language line from A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD!  Industrial into a sludge of noise as we drop into the lake...

AtmosFerox presents Black Market Brains LIVE


A live performance captured using 3 Arturia Microfreaks and a Volca Sample on a dark and stormy night. Gothic industrial ambient experiences abound!  All sounds by myself as BLACK MARKET BRAINS.

Free Industrial / Dark Ambient release!


The latest BLACK MARKET BRAINS release on Mixcloud is live.  This is a 50 minute excursion into industrial, ambient and powernoise entitled THE ARCHITECTURE OF ENNUI.  It's soft sometimes, loud at turns and occasional rhythmic!  All sounds forged by me using a bank of 3 Arturia Microfreaks and a stitched together in the lab of Count Orlof!

Black Market Brains On MIXCLOUD

A new post!  My electronic music project, BLACK MARKET BRAINS, tackled the weird world of EuroSF of the 70s.  A thirty minute mix of SEVEN GOLDEN WOMEN AGAINST METALLICOR is up for your listening pleasure!  

This one started after my umpteenth run through the Al Brescia space epics and their uberweird scores by Marcello Giombini!  The instruments used were mostly just two Arturia Microfreaks (my favorite instrument by far) and an UnoDrum reloaded with emulations of the Roland drum machines of the 70s and 80s.  What resulted was a lot of fun! 

Soundcloud was the original home and this was an hour long but the persistence of ads in any extended listening there brought me to Mixcloud. The artists are all me as you can't use more than 4 by any one person on that service.  Some good fun and look for tributes to Yanti Somer, Antonio Sabato and of course Sirpa Lane!
