Welcome to Sparkling Harmonies! We're your hosts Lili & Francois, two friends who don't quite listen to the same music or genres but who are here to talk to you about anything and everything music-related!
How invested do we get in an artist?
In this episode, we get into what we usually do when we get into a new artist and how sometimes it varies depending on multiple factors. We also discuss the fine line between being a fan and being an infatuated and unhealthy fan.
After this episode, we will be taking a short break! You can listen to us again in October!
Audio processing (autotune) & its impact on music ft Liz Labelle
In this episode, we've got singer/songwriter/producer Liz Labelle with us to talk about autotune, how it has changed the way we listen to music and we debate its use in the industry (or overuse). Being a producer and singer herself, she walks us through the more technical aspects of the tool and gives us examples of how our ears have grown accustomed to finely tuned music.
Guilty pleasures (& why they shouldn't exist) ft Eric Hébert
In this episode, we've got Eric Hebert with us to break down guilty pleasures, why they exist and mostly, why we think it's a concept that shouldn't exist. We get into how everyone should just like what they like without a care in the world but we try to understand how this concept came to be.
Our mid-summer recommendations
A couple of weeks ago, half of Lili's favorite bands released music so here we are with a full music recommendations episode! François branches out into different genres and into a documentary whereas Lili discusses the releases of a couple of Korean bands and a few alt-rock bands from three different continents!
What makes a summer song?
In this episode, we discuss summer songs! What makes a summer song? Is it just the time of year it gets released? Does it need to have a certain vibe or certain message? Lili listens to whatever, whenever but François really has his summer favorites.
Which is more important: melody or lyrics?
In this episode, we discuss what draws us to songs: melody or lyrics? To get more insight, we go through poll results Lili did on Instagram with that question and a follow-up question, which was: do you listen to music in a language you don't speak? We also asked ourselves what the definition of a "song" actually is.
What about you? What is more important to you when you listen to music?
