In the scene where the Kanes take dozens of their guests on a "picnic" to the Everglades, Kane and wife Susan are arguing inside their tent.  Their argument turns violent, and after Kane slaps Susan, we hear a woman screaming, presumably from outside the tent.  And the jazz band has stopped playing.

Did Welles ever explain these screams?  Are they supposed to be psychological screams coming from inside Susan's thoughts?

I don't know if Welles ever explained it, but I've always thought that the screaming was, if not coming from Susan's psyche, at least a fascinating use of sound that enhances the frightening mood.
