9pm: Eddie The Rat, CD Release performance “Once Around The Butterfly Bush”


Eddie the Rat began in 2000 as an avant- (something) group led by composer/multi-instrumentalist, Peter J. Martin. Beginning as a one-man electro-acoustic experiment, Eddie the Rat evolved into an ensemble of up to 15 musicians. The current quartet has been performing actively for the last year and a half.

Eddie the Rat creates what they call “head music for your feet.” Inspired by Indonesian gamelan, American & European folk, and modern classical music, Eddie the Rat plays a
musical form which is all their own and tries to bridge the gap between ritual, roots, and concert music.
