RIYL: coy liaisons with fine Japanese electronic instruments, tomorrow's sad-funk
Can machines develop sadness? Regret? Does the keyboard grazing of one's fingertips over the years accumulate feelings and longings in these electronic tools, both so invisible to us in our waking human lives? Are we responsible for the emotional care and feeding of these electronic servants? What was staring back at you from that illuminated screen you spent so many hours, weeks, and months in front of, a screen you always assumed beheld a one-way conversation?

A sad attraction, forever trapped behind glass, a perpetually unrequited love and you never knew.
