PNG Music Video Produced Down Under

MAY FRIDAY 11th, 2007 (BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND) – If you’re getting tired of the same styled music video’s on EMTV then sit tight because Massive Sound System have something fresh baking in the oven.

For the last couple of months Allen Kedea producer of Massive Sound System has been working with young film producers in Brisbane on a fresh concept for their hit song ‘Everywhere’. Allen a.k.a. akay47 will be using the power of the internet to help promote their new music video to the world market. With websites like MySpace, Hi 5 & Bebo fast becoming popular resources for the latest music videos, Massive Sound System have opted to use the net as an avenue to help promote their music and expose new PNG music to the world.

When asked what the idea behind the clip was Allen replied, “The concept was to do something fresh for the PNG market while keeping the film clip professional enough that an international audience can digest and appreciate it.” PNG has so much musical talent, but so little of it is exposed on a world stage. “We want to be taken seriously as sound designers but the clip had to be funny!” Allen explains as he laughs. “We thought this would catch viewers off guard because they’d be expecting a romantic type clip because Everywhere is a love song. The clip is a love story but not in the conventional sense. That’s all I can really say without giving too much away.”

Massive Sound System have been approached by ABC Radio to do an interview on their new album and talk about PNG music crossing over into Australasia. The interview will be broadcasted live on radio in Australia and PNG. The segment is called, ‘In The Loop’ and covers all aspects in the Pacific region. The interview is scheduled for 2:30pm, Friday 18th May 2007. If you would more information on the interview head to

The film clip for ‘Everywhere’ is to be released in PNG via CHM’s music video show, CHM Super Sound Video Hits in the next couple of weeks. The music video will be broadcasted online via the MSS website The release of this new film clip will coincide with the release of their new CD titled ‘Pride, Neglect, Greed’. Out in-store now via CHM nation wide.

  3. “Mr Pip” to start filming in PNG and Solomons


    AN international film, to be auditioned in Bougainville, Port Moresby and Honiara is set for casting next week.
    The film Mr Pip is based on a book by New Zealand author Lloyd Jones. The story is set in 1991, during the Bougainville conflict. Fourteen-year-old Matilda and her mother Dolores live in an isolated village in Bougainville. Matilda’s village has lost electricity, medicine and teachers but no-one has been killed. Mr Watts, the only white man among them, agrees to teach the kids. He reads the novel, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Matilda imagines a world where the characters in the book, Pip, Joe and Estella, look like her and other villagers, but they are wearing Victorian clothes and living in homes which are bigger versions of village huts. She is a bit in love with Pip and writes his name on the beach. The PNG army think the village is hiding a rebel by the name of Pip. The misunderstanding escalates and Matilda’s mother and Mr Watts are killed. Matilda escapes and lives with her Australian based father until an unexpected inheritance from Mr Watts takes her to London and to Dicken’s real house in Rochester.
    Emotions from her past almost overwhelm her until she discovers that Pip has helped her find her own voice and she begins to tell her own story.
    The producers, directors and those in charge of auditions are now set to travel these areas next week, starting with Honiara. They are looking for the key roles of Matilda, a 12-14 year old girl and her mother and are asking people to help them by recommending suitable people, putting in touch with cultural groups where these people can be found. They want to find people from Bougainville.
    Their travel dates are:
    * July 20, travel to Honiara
    * July 21 to 25, casting in and around Honiara

  4. It is good to see that massive sound system is moving forward and having help from overseas is a major plus one on their side but in PNG other talented groups like doormans project and texas island are the one’s hitting the charts in PNG but Chm needs to come up with more promising promotion stragtegies to market their stars. and also you need to consider the fact that what is real PNG music and what is not since most songs are just copies of international music there is no point calling your music PNG music if it is made and sung outside of PNG without living the real Png and to actually get feed back from people who buy the music in PNG otherwise it will all just be your own fantasy since the majority only listen to “PNG music” so better off calling it something else.

  5. Some good thoughts Vetts. I think one of the best things about AKay47 (who was really the main driver behind Massive Sound System) is that he moved back to PNG and has been working and producing music for a range of artists here for the last 3-4 years now.

    Massive Sound System will no longer continue but I think in terms of the progression of our ‘PNG Music’ I think its taking some important steps in PNG alone.

    PNG is a big country of many influences and what we have traditionally known to be PNG music will begin to evolve and change in the years to come.

    1. Free songs are great for the public, but sooner or later we will have to work out better business models for Melanesian artists to get fairly compensated for their work.

      It may one day come in the form of mobile downloads, maybe online downloads or flat fee streaming. But as Internet gets cheaper and more wide spread the better the opportunities that will arise.
