Korg USA Launches ‘Micro Masterpiece’ Contest

Korg Microkorg XL+No fooling: Korg USA has announced a micro-themed giveaway. They’re asking for musicians to showcase their talents to win their pick of a Korg MS-20 Mini, a Korg RK-100S or one of the three members of the Korg Volca series: the Volca Beats, Volca Keys or Volca Bass.

The “Micro Masterpiece” contest runs today through April 30, 2014. To enter, US residents over age 18 can upload an original video performance onto YouTube consisting exclusively of sounds from their MicroKorg, MicroKorgXL and/or MicroKorgXL+ in any combination or singular use. Entrants may also incorporate audio and MIDI recording/looping products to expand the musical and creative possibilities.

Each musical entry will be rated by a panel of judges in each of the following criteria: originality (25%), humor (25%), creativity (25%) and entertainment value (25%). The individual with the highest percentage “score” will be named the winner and will be notified via email. For specific entry instructions and information regarding official rules and conditions, please visit the Korg promotions page.

    1. There way of hinting it should be potentially “viral”, not just a dark room filled with wires and flashing LEDs.

      1. What about those of us who like dark rooms filled with wires and flashing lights? I thought that was the whole reason there are so many LED’s on the Volcas…

  1. I would far prefer to have to save up and buy all these prizes rather than even consider incorporating those “criteria” into any kind serious creative work. What a turkey.

  2. This is my favorite evil boilerplate text from the rules: “each entrant hereby grants to the Sponsor the non-exclusive, irrevocable, fully paid, universal license to use, copy, sublicense, transmit,
    distribute, publicly perform, publish, delete or display such entry, or any portion thereof in any
    media now known or hereafter devised including, but not limited to all forms of electronic
    media, print media and all forms of internet and wireless protocol.”

    I think not.
