Eaters share “Moment of Inertia” from audio-visual art project, play NYC tonight with Shabazz Palaces
Brooklyn electronic duo Eaters recently worked with visual artist Christopher Duffy on a project for the Chrysler Museum of Art’s Glass Studio in Norfolk, VA that was titled “Moment of Inertia”:
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.
The artwork above is a picture of the “Moment of Inertia” acetate on the glass cylinder and you can check out video of it in action, below. You can also stream the original source recording, as well as the acetate and the recording of it on the glass cylinder. That makes its premiere in this post and you can listen below. “Moment of Inertia” will show in New York and other North American cities later this year.
As mentioned, Eaters are currently out with Seattle’s Shabazz Palaces and that tour hits NYC tonight (8/5) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets are still available. All Eaters tour dates are listed below.
