The Tritone – Trey’s Theory Corner, Episode 8

It’s been called many things, but the Tritone (the devil’s interval, the tritonus, flatted fifth, diminished fifth, augmented fourth, the Diabolus in Musica, or as I like to call it – the Treytone) is for sure one of the most universally intriguing sounds ever discovered. It has a haunting quality to it, and in just about every context it creates a need to be resolved, some tension begging for a release. On the 8th episode of Trey’s Theory Corner, we dive into this most provocative of intervals and see what makes it tick.

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
