Satanic Harmony serves as a sketch for a performance of tritones: dissonant chords that were once considered blasphemous to play, or indicated the presence of evil in the context of religious music. Each individual plate describes different tones with musical and theoretical diagrams, and all three plates triangulated create a space to imagine the diabolical.

Issue 3 is about the concept of “genre”, as it applies to various creative outlets. A prominent thread in this issue is artwork that inhabits both the digital and physical spheres, with little distinction drawn between. This issue is about removing genres; not only genres of “Postinternet” and “New Media”, but also categories of classification on a larger scale as they relate to gender and social constructs.
