I'm reading a book entitled "Healing Beyond the Body - Medicine and the Infinite Reach of the Mind" by Larry Dossey, M.D. and on page 123 it
"Music has strange powers. Specific musical passages, for example, are known by medical scientists to evoke epileptic seizures--it's called
musicogenic epilepsy, reports Macdonald Critchley in Music and the Brain
. Certain notes have been associated in the past with evil--most
notably B-natural, which was known as 'the note of the devil.'"
He doesn't cite the source of this information, however, and a google search turned up nothing relevant. Has anyone else heard about certain notes
being considered evil, or know where I could possibly find more information about it? Personally, I never cared much for the sound of B natural, but
I wouldn't call it evil.
By the way, the reason I ask is pure curiosity. I have no intention of playing a note repetitively to see what kind of evil it summons...
I have a feeling it would only summon angry neighbors anyway.
