The Garden

Bosch’s Butt Music

In his masterpiece The Garden of Earthly Delights, Hieronymus Bosch included an early Easter egg for music fans... in Hell, of all places! The right panel of the triptych shows a man lying under a giant lute with a series of musical notes inscribed on his posterior. A madcap orchestra led be a demonic conductor plays the song for a raucous crowd of damned souls. To the best of our abilities, this is what we believe it sounds like.
