The Song of the Flame-Red Lobster

On a recent edition of The Freakier Zone, Professor Justin Spear introduced Radio 6 listeners to an 'armful of groovy soundtracks with a swinging psychedelic slant'.  One of these was made to accompany a 1966 Swedish arthouse film called Oj Oj Oj eller sången om den eldröda hummern ('Well well well, or the Song of the Flame-Red Lobster') directed by Torbjörn Axelman.  As you can see from the clip above, this involved the creation of a vast abstract painting on a frozen lake by a man in a suit running around and firing paint bombs.
