Eddie the Rat is the pseudonym for composer and multi-instrumentalist Peter J. Martin (aka Pete Rat) and the musical group who execute his compositions. Martin calls his music "head music for your feet." Inspired by everything from Indonesian gamelan, American music styles (Jazz, Blues, rock), and modern orchestral music, Eddie the Rat tries to bridge the gap between ritual, roots, and concert music.
"Food for the Moon Too Soon" was the first CD to document Martin's journey from a solo electro-acoustic artist to the leader of a large performing group. Recorded live in 2001 at Artist's Television Access in San Francisco, the performance showcases a 12-piece ensemble in a nine-track song-cycle about death, consciousness, and insanity which masquerades as normality. The piece uses composed cyclical patterns which are conducted by Martin in an on-the-fly cut & paste performance.
