Matmos ‎
"Rat Relocation Program"


CD, Locust Music, 2004

"A street rat was breaking into our apartment, eating our food and chewing holes in our clothes,
skittering across our kitchen in the dark, scuttling inside our walls late at night. Since we already
had a pet rat, the prospect of trying to kill one rat while feeding another struck us as intolerable
hypocrisy, so we bought a non-lethal "Have-a-Heart Trap". After several days of luring the invader
closer and closer towards and then inside the trap with peanuts, we captured her. The first track is
an unedited recording of the rat protesting its incarceration. The second track is our response, in
which the timing and duration of the rat screams from the first track have been preserved. The
following morning we took the rat to a wealthy suburban neighborhood and set it free." -Drew Daniel
