Korg DS-10 Video Tutorial

over at IGN i recently reviewed the Korg DS-10 synthesizer for the Nintendo DS. it's a pretty cool little tool, but it can be complicated for anyone who isn't used to virtual synths. i put up a video tutorial to demonstrate just what this little guy can do. please to enjoy:

New CD Now Available!

Monster-0's second LP, "Don't Worry About the World," is now available!  It's been a long time coming, but 11 new songs of drum machine love and heart-broken cyborgs are now available over at CDBaby.  My good friend Ryan Geddes helped out a lot with this record and played some keen egg shaker on the last song.  IGN designer Scott Senkowski provided the artwork. the record will be available to download from iTunes soon, but for now those that still prefer physical objects can get the real world disc ($10).

MONSTER-0: Don't Worry About the World

let me know what you think, and i could also use some reviews at CDBaby. thanks for all your support. Scoop!

Monster-0 Presents: Don't Worry About the World

my second full-length, to be released sooner than later, will be called Don't Worry About the World.  i just handed it off to the mastering engineer who is hard at work getting it to sound as choice as possible.  as soon as he's finished (which could be as early as later this week) i'll post song samples on myspace.  until then, here's what the track list looks like:

1. let's have a sunset together
2. you are my drum machine
3. don't worry about the world
4. keep me informed
5. every part of the world
6. entex
7. fall apart again
8. card game clock
9. young man, be wary!
10. robocop vs. terminator
11. let's say our goodbyes

New Album is Done!

at least my part is.  i've finished recording, but it still needs to be professionally mixed and mastered.  the next step is to shop it around to a few appropriate labels to see if anyone wants to put it out.  if not, i'll go ahead and release it myself like the last LP.  i think it's my best work so far, though, and i can't wait for you to hear it.  11 songs.  some electro pop, some rockers, and a couple more thoughtful pieces.

SF Bands: Avoid BrainWash

dude, you do not want to play there. the BrainWash website is totally misleading about what equipment they have. plus, the band is expected to set up what busted ass equipment you can find in their dark closet that doesn't have a light. the staff is no help at all. if you have your own PA system you can make it work, but be prepared to deal with a bunch of assholes. best to just avoid the whole mess.

i made you a muxtape

lots of people have been asking me for music recommendations lately, especially for dance stuff. luckily i just discovered this new site called Muxtape. it lets users upload mp3s onto their own mixtape page and share them with the universe. i've created a DaemZero mixtape of new stuff i've been listening to and some old favorites. there are only nine songs on there now, but i'll add more soon.

enjoy here.

Well, hello there

welcome to the new Monster-0 blog.  in this age of myspace and free blogs, it just doesn't make sense to pay for web hosting and operate a site i have neither the time nor the talent to manage well.  so, instead of www.monster-0.com, you'll be able to find all Monster-0 updates right here.

speaking of updates, i have a new song to share with you.  i'm about half way done with a proper, new full-length album, and this is just a little taste.  it's called "let's say our goodbyes."

oh, i should take this opportunity to remind folks that my name is pronounced monster "zero," not monster "oh." Monster-0 is one of the monsters from the old Godzilla flicks.

in other news, against my better judgement, i'm turning 30 this saturday. because these milestones are passed more successfully with friends and alcohol, i'm having a little get together on January 31. it will be at the Space Gallery in downtown San Francisco, 1141 polk st. i'll also be playing a Monster-0 dj set that night. festivities start at 8:30. if you're in the bay area, by all means please join us.
