An opera singer and his band have devised a way to decode lyrics from the opera by analysing the way that the words are written on the page.
“We wrote this piece and it’s a very simple piece,” said Nader Asadollah, the lead singer of a new opera called The Bitter Edge.
“It’s a great example of how you can analyse lyrics on the screen,” he added.
“There are a few words written on it but we can understand the structure of it better.”
Asadarollah and his orchestra were inspired by the lyrics of opera singer-songwriter Riz Ahmed.
He wrote lyrics that were so precise that it required them to be interpreted.
“The lyrics are like the script for a musical, where the words don’t matter,” Asadir said.
“When you read lyrics in a piece, you have to understand how the characters are writing the lyrics, how they are interpreting the lyrics and what the meaning is. “
“You have to listen to them and understand their meaning in the context of the piece. “
“If you can understand these lyrics, you can decode them better.”‘”

“All you have is a keyboard, a microphone and a microphone stand.
The idea is to play the piece and listen to the sounds,” he said.
The musicians will record and analyse the notes the singers make.
“I can just play the notes and I will see how the notes are played, and then I will play them and I’ll see what is going on,” Asidar said.
They will use the recorded notes to generate their own interpretations of the lyrics.
“In this piece, we were very noisy,” he noted.
“So we would make an interpretation, and it would be the same thing, the same words. “
“Then the next time we play the same note, we will hear something different. “
We will hear the words differently.” “
Then the next time we play the same note, we will hear something different.
We will hear the words differently.”
The music will be a mix of traditional Arabic music and modern instruments, and Asadario hopes to record the entire piece in the same room.
“Our goal is to make this piece very accessible, so you can listen to it without being too much afraid of it,” he explained.
The team plans to perform the piece on stage in April and hope to record some of the pieces that they have written.
The task was not as simple as writing the words.
Asadarian said that it was important to make sure the music had enough room for the voices to play and that they were not too loud.
“Sometimes the music will sound too loud and you might not understand the words,” he told Al Jazeera.
“For instance, in one part of the work, we are playing a song called Bebe’s song,” he recalled.
“At the end of the song, there is a line where there are three people talking.
So the Arabic is not too good.” “
After the song is done, we heard a little bit of English in the background.
So the Arabic is not too good.”
The researchers hope that their work will be used by the opera industry and the public to help people understand the meanings of poetry and to make it easier for people to understand musicals.
