[Composition 05 by Seprix]
Hi everyone, welcome to episode 3 of Tenny’s Tunes. I am your host, Tenny.
Now, you don’t have to be famous to be good at something. I think all of us, at some point in our lives, would find people around us that are just so talented at particular things they do. Perhaps one of your friends has a beautiful voice. Or that person sitting across from you in the dining hall just loves solving math problems.
Sometimes, we ourselves would receive praise from others. “Wow, you are so good at this! Why didn’t you tell me before?”
Seprix is one such person who has composed numerous pieces of music and has published them on Newgrounds. Little is known about him, or her, but it is apparent that piano is one of Seprix’s favorite instruments.
I am a great fan of Seprix, so I want to dedicate this week’s episode to someone I look up to as a fellow musician. One of Seprix’s top hits is called “Piano Composition 11,” and I will play the recording by Seprix since my rendition just doesn’t live up to the awesomeness of the original. I really tried, trust me. So listen along, and together we will explore the world of Seprix. Here we go…

The composition and execution are just so good. Since the music was performed by Seprix, I don’t know if I am qualified to give my interpretation of the piece. But I will take the risk. The piece is sad overall, indicated by the minor key as well as the whispering of each note and each chord that comes at you wave after wave. Two-thirds through, we see a turning point where there is a jolt in volume, as the piece briefly turns into major key before diving back into minor.
The image I had in mind while listening was a scene of reminiscence. We sit and play this piece on the piano, remembering an old friend who is not here anymore. The sadness was not rupturing, but rather acting like an anesthesia, slowing corroding the memories away. Suddenly, the old friend glides before our eyes, floating above the keys before dispersing into a cloud of smoke.
The music returns to where it began. But something in our heart has changed.
Music composed and performed by Seprix. I am Tenny Tsang, and this is NBN Audio. Thank you so much for listening, and I will see you next time on Tenny’s Tunes.
