Show Notes

For the first episode of our season on the dark arts (no Harry Potter), join Allison and Chris as they literally and figuratively set the tone for this show and discuss the Devil's Interval, also known as the tritone. This discordant series of notes features heavily in music throughout the centuries, and has carried with it the reputation of being banned by the Catholic church during the medieval period for its ability to inspire lasciviousness, perniciousness, and possibly even summon Lucifer himself.

And as a couple of middle-aged folks are wont to do, they spend a little time reminiscing about ska and Gregorian chants.
