Singing Sarus??
« on: June 16, 2010, 12:06:13 PM »

I have to say that ever since I found out about Sarus and this website, I've been totally enthralled at learning more!

One thing though....I'm confused at why I haven't seen anything on how to properly *sing* in Sarus....

I mean, isn't that the point of having a musical language? So that one can sing it if they want to.

Please help me out, I'd love to learn how to communicate like this. ;)

Also...I had this idea. Since music is measured in beats and short/long notes....wouldn't it be a fantastic idea to also include this into Sarus? I mean, it could help distinguish words easier if they were broken down into Morse code-like syllables. Each note could have 3 types _short ___middle _____and long.
That's my input anyway. I'd like to keep on studying Sarus and such languages and come up with my own version of the language....and call it 'solace' (from the 'sol' in Solresol and the 'as' in Sarus ;D). I'd love to come up with the most harmonious language possible.

Sorry, I hope this isn't rambling. If you have any comments, please let me know.

Hi, welcome to the forum!
yep, as you know the language is built on a foundation of music: do re mi fa so la ti
So any sarus word can be sung or played on a musical instrument. Singing lyrics has an added dimension, because you can be singing words of any language, but the notes can mean something entirely different in Sarus. I've yet to hear a successful attempt at that though and I've never tried it myself.
