Compound precepts and affects

“What is preservedthe thing or the work of art is a block of sensations, that is to say, a compound of percepts and affects.”*

                                                                                                                                              fix the light
I was on Daniel Coffeen’s site(doctor of the rhtorical arts) this night, and I just so happen to be listening to the Norwegian Black Metal band Burzum, and was struck by the affect produced through the juxtaposition of all the elements; text, background, and music.

Here are some more
compound precepts & affects. 
Consider the way these pictuers change the music.
If you can sense the changing then you understand the concept of the percept.

                                                       Alfred Hitchcock comes to mind.

                                   I think this video I took at the prayer office goes quite well too.
