'Moment of Inertia' is an audio-visual experiment from the group Eaters, conceived by visual artist and group member Christopher Duffy.  A large cylinder of glass serves as a manually-spun platter for an altered turntable, playing an original composition cut to acetate.  Void of a motor of any sort, the turntable slows over the course of the composition, eventually coming to a complete stop.  Throughout the experience, tempo and pitch fluctuate, exploring perceptions of speed, elasticity, and entropy.
