Do you ever associate pictures with songs? Yesterday, I stumbled upon The Scream, Edvard Munch’s best-known painting, perhaps one of the most famous art pieces in the world. The emotional intensity of the subject reminded me of Camus’ absurd: when Man shouts at the universe and is met with nothing but indifference. It also reminded of one of King Crimson’s darkest songs, The Devil’s Triangle.

Here they are together, an audio-visual experience: The Devil’s Scream, by Evard Crimson.
