Collective in its essence and source, “We Are Not Machines” was first recorded at HIVER (the 2019 37d03d Artist in Residency and Eaux Claires winter Festival), in a make-shift studio in downtown Eau Claire, WI. Envisioned and produced by Pieta Brown, with S. Carey and Brian Joseph, this live version of the song features luminous contributions from Greg Brown, Ani DiFranco, Gail Ann Dorsey, Ben Lester and Milwaukee’s own SistaStrings. The “Machine Learning” poem by Wiliam Brittelle is read by Greg Brown.
