MELVILLE, NY, June 24, 2011 — Korg USA congratulates Matt Griffo from Chicago, Illinois – the winner   of the “What Would You Do for a Korg Kronos” video contest. As the winner, Griffo is also now the owner of his very own 73-key Kronos Music Workstation. Korg hand-delivered the prize keyboard to him at his home;  a video of his reaction, plus a video of artist Jordan Rudess congratulating him, can be found at http://www.korg.com/kronosvideocontest.

Korg  USA celebrated the launch of its newest flagship keyboard by offering  the contest, which ran this past spring. Entrants were asked to create an original YouTube video explaining or demonstrating what they would do for a free Kronos.

Submissions  were judged on originality, creativity  and entertainment value. The  ten finalists had their videos posted to  Korg’s YouTube channel. The number of views each finalist received on  Korg’s YouTube channel was  one of the factors used by a special panel of  Korg artists and staffers to determine the winner. Griffo’s tongue-in-cheek music video left a big impression with the judges, and garnered quite a strong viewing  log. His winning entry can be watched on  Korg USA’s YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/KorgUSAVideos or on www.korg.com.

To applaud the efforts of the nine other finalists in the contest, Korg will award each of them a Korg  MR-2 high-resolution mobile recorder. The finalists’ videos can also be  found on Korg USA’s YouTube page: (keyword: Finalist). They include: Ari Lowenthal, California; Mike Conway, Nevada; Brian Sherman, California;   Dann Webber, Missouri; Brendan Spear, Maryland; Robbie Ryan, Texas; Randi Revill, Alabama; Elizabeth Wren, Nevada; and David Stephen; Nevada.
