Episode 2 revolves around a question of what do you love when you love your machine? Joined by an all-star cast of musicians and collaborators, hosts John and Libby Modern explore the mechanics and metaphysics of technophilia in these viral times. All manner of machines are held up for loving appreciation: Beautiful glitches and block chain deities. Social media embraces and the tingling textures of 16mm film. Fountain pens and the future of civilization. A child’s imagination of the iPad. The whip of the wind and its measurement. Insulin pumps. Automatic transmissions and cassette tapes that defy logic and entropy both. So put on your headphones on and you will hear a lush array of samples, original beats, and immersive stories that address our frenzied infatuations and our nostalgia, our anxieties and our standing awestruck, and whether machines can ever truly love themselves. With appearances from Mark Taylor, Judith Weisenfeld, Elizabeth Wilson, Hillary Kaell, Sylvia Alajaji, Nathan Schneider, Tim Ingold, Maeva Kroll, and Holly Andrew, each episode of Machines in Between beta tests a new application of the Rosary 1653, an experimental sonic-emotional-spiritual technology provided by series sponsor Infinity 88.
