I wish to introduce an old friend of mine, from an old 2012 forum, mainly because some of his research is puzzle piece material to some.
His name is Raphael, sorta known as the Swastika man lol >
Here is a snippit >
Diabolus in Musica a.k.a. the augmented fourth expresses its musical geometry as a Maltese Cross.
Beginning @ 0:20:15 James Furia discusses augmented 4ths, or the Diabolus in Musica.
James claims this was an “interesting find”.
James also adds that “it is horrible sounding … you’d drive somebody crazy with this”
Why is the augmented 4th considered the “chord of evil“, and why was it banned in Renaissance church music
I love this coincidence regarding the “chord of evil“ i.e. it is successfully employed in emergency sirens. Worldwide the Maltese Cross is used as a symbol to represent fire departments.
What other concepts can we find associated to the geometry of the Maltese Cross, the “chord of evil?
Diabolus in Musica seems to bear a resemblance to the symbol associated with “In hoc signo vinces” or “in this sign conquer”.
