Thanks. I can't say I find that comfortable to listen to but I wouldn't call it satanic in itself.He discovered it on his own while playing. Later he learned what it was. It's the augmented fourth. It was banned during the renaissance in church music.
The Wikipedia article I linked to says "However, suggestions that singers were excommunicated or otherwise punished by the Church for invoking this interval are likely fanciful" and suggests the reasons for avoidance were musical but I'd imagine opinions differ on this.
