These Humble Machines is a compilation album by American electronic musician BT, composed of edited versions of songs from his album These Hopeful Machines. Released on April 26, 2011,[1] the album was released with the intention of making the album more accessible for newer listeners while still displaying the same technical prowess found in its predecessor.[2] The album features some radio edits ("Suddenly", "Always") while also liberally using splice editing and fade-outs to edit down songs ("The Emergency", "Every Other Way", "Le nocturne de lumière".)
