Centrifugal Force

This piece was heavily inspired by a post-hardcore band called La Dispute and their lyrics, which often involve stories about grief and loss.
The title is a term of Newton’s, “an object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force”. It describes a fictitious force, also known as an “inertial force”. The title is appropriate, because this piece is circular in design, and was meant to draw you either inward or outwards of its center. Some, however, may find themselves in motion in the same speed and direction, and require an unbalanced force (such as grief or loss) to send them in a direction once more.
