forty second sounds, llc
What exactly is forty second sounds/42s?
Good question! The trademark of forty second sounds now encompasses any song that has content around 40 seconds in length. Categorizing music by length is an entirely new way of looking at the industry- and our business concept is so revolutionary that it deserves its own genre.
42s is exactly that- 4 + 2 s’s from writing out ‘forty second sounds’. Don’t get too caught up, it’s just a cool, shorter name for those who are easily tongue-tied. The logo doubles as a reminder that our sounds are around 40 seconds, so really it’s just a fun play on graphics and words.
How is this company any different than what I can find online now?
Our 42s Team strives to deliver quality over quantity. Have you ever listened to a song and after a while realized you were still listening to the same monotonous beat? Repetition may help you remember something, but if it’s to the point of boredom then there’s no fun in that.
So the sounds that you will hear and see stamped with the 42s logo will cut out all unnecessary repetition or filler-space and get straight to the point for a quality, undiluted listening experience.
What does 42s do?
42s is an umbrella that contains all services that an independent artist would ever need from songwriting, music video production, audio production, and more. We have a division for kids and teens- 42sJR, as well as an 8-week songwriting camp that can be delivered in-person* or virtually- 42sAcademy.
We are continuously expanding, so if your needs are remotely related to what we described, contact us.
What is 42sJR?
42sJR provides one on one therapeutic song composition and music video production services to kids ages 5-17. We specifically created a branch for just kids as there is a higher level of attention and care needed for our youth.
Our therapeutic songwriting curriculum allows for your child to get a customized experience to help facilitate home and school life in a positive--and fun-- way!

What is 42sAcademy?
42sAcademy is an 8-week camp offered in-person* or online that concludes with a completed song and final performance for each camper. At 42sAcademy, Kids and Teens are provided with a safe space to verbalize problems that they can't necessarily fix on their own. Our therapeutic songwriting curriculum helps kids and teens talk about their feelings- and have fun doing it while learning new skills in music!
Our mission at 42sAcademy is to reduce problems at home, school, and begin new friendships for kids through the love of music. We hope that by confronting these problems at a young age, kids and teens will develop as creative, versatile, and productive individuals that value the importance of self-care and mental wellness.

Can I be a 42s artist? What is that process like?
The entire concept of 42s is to foster inclusiveness and make room in the industry for the up-and-coming artist. Whether you are just starting out, or you already have 50k monthly listeners, we are always looking for new talent!
By making music with us, we already consider you part of the family. We work diligently to promote our artists and showcase the sounds that we create together. Contact us to get started on your customized package, or take a look at our Additional Services, here.
Where did this idea come from?
Have you ever listened to a song only for a specific artist or verse? Have you ever gotten bored listening to a song that kept repeating itself verse after verse?
Well, look no further because that’s what 42s is here to solve! We celebrate complete thoughts-- no matter what the length may be. A small diamond can be just as valuable as an entire plot of land; therefore, good— if not better— sounds can also come in smaller packages.
Is this company trying to replace the "normal" length of regular songs?
We pride ourselves on delivering a quality, undiluted experience to broaden your musical palette- not replace it. We are providing a clear concept in expanding the world's listening preferences, and complementing your playlist with forty seconds sounds will be a plus for both listeners and artists.
I'm not musically gifted. Can I still be a 42s artist?
Everyone is an artist because we all have our own story. Our own experiences. So if you want to be heard, click here.
Again, we are trying to reach out to all edges of musical tastes and break down the barriers of eligibility to be part of this new genre. 42s celebrates the differences that bind us all together, while at the same time being an undiluted-forty second sound. If you want to play around, or this is a goal you’ve had for a while now, you should take a look at our Additional Services, here.
How can I be part of the revolution?
Listen. Create. Repost and share. This revolution cannot happen without YOU. Encourage your friends/up-and-coming artists to make music with us so that they can boost their following and project their message to the world.

Why would artists want to shorten their music?
Size doesn’t always matter. Artists benefit from being able to have a complete thought without judgment of how long it needs to be. Our dedicated listeners benefit from not having to skip through songs or playlists anymore for the quality content that they seek. This is a win-win with no filler in between.
