The Aeternal Lovers Sound System
The Aeternal Lovers Sound System is a collaborative platform for music production, where new and established artists come together to celebrate the people, nature, sights and sounds of New York City and beyond. We produce original beats and layer them with the voices of poets, rappers, spoken word artists and regular folks. This is a venue for community: A place for people in different parts of the city, country and world to contribute to the same conversation.
Are you holding onto the chorus of a song? Even a few words or a few lines from a poem you started but never finished? With the Aeternal Lovers Sound System, you can interface with musical production and a growing community of artists. Aspiring musicians and hobbyists alike can contribute to an ever evolving, crowdsourced musical composition in an increasingly digital time.
MUSIC VIDEOS FROM PAST COLLABORATIONS
We’re working on our first fully-digital music collaboration and would love for you to submit a word or phrase (in any language) that reminds you of the eternal power of love, inspiring you to create more, connect more, and love more. We will layer the submissions over our Love Power beat, and the crowdsourced composition will be featured on our SoundCloud and website. As always, you will be credited for your contribution. Feel free to send us a voice clip of any length via pCloud, Gmail, WhatsApp or Instagram DM. Please reach out with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We showed up on the sidewalk in front of the Bronx Native Market in Hunts Point on July 13, 2019 with our library of beats and invited passerbys to make music with us. We brought the beats. They brought the words.
