Summary
Close-up shots of a double bass are saturated with vibrant color highlights. Images are layered and presented in gridlike formations. A base black-and-white image is enhanced through processing work. "The Thundering Scream of the Seraphin's Delight" is approximately 15 minutes long.

The music, which dominates the work, was composed by Reynold Weidnaar and performed by Weidnaar and Robert Black, who plays the double bass. The score is experimental in tone and unfolds slowly, pushing the capabilities of the instruments.
