MACHINES THAT ARE A LITTLE

DIFFERENT THAN THE STANDARDS

YOU SEE IN THE CAFE.

WALDRON FROM COUNTRY COFFEE HERE

IN Ft. WAYNE, WE SPENT ALOT

OF TIME

TOGETHER AND WE MET THROUGH

MUSIC AND FORMED OUR FRIENDS.

>> STARTED DOING THESE

SKETCHES OF MACHINES THAT KIND

OF LOOK LIKE SODA FOUNTAIN

BEER TAPS.

THEY ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE

REALLY.

ERIC AND I WERE PLAYING IN A

BAND.

WE HAD THIS

THING GOING

>> WHILE WE WERE PLAYING MUSIC

HANGING OUT AFTER, HE KEPT

TALKING ABOUT THIS ESPRESSO

MACHINE THAT YOU CAN SEE

THROUGH.

>> FOR SOME REASON I HAD THIS

ZANY IDEA WE COULD MAKE A

MACHINE WHERE ALL OF THE

INTERNAL COMPONENTS COULD BE

SHELFED OUT OF THE WAY THE

ACTUAL BUSINESS END OF AN

ESPRESSO MACHINE.

THE WHOLE CONCEPT TO

ENHANCE THE INTERACTION BETWEEN

A BARISTA AND A CUSTOMER TO

ENHANCE THE COFFEE EXPERIENCE

>> IF WE LOOK AT TYPICAL

ESPRESSO MACHINE, IT'S A FAIRLY

LARGE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT ON THE

BAR.

YOU WILL ORDER A DRINK AND SEE

SOMEBODY DISAPPEAR BEHIND THE

MACHINE AND HEAR SOME STRANGE

NOISES AND

OUT COMES YOUR DRINK, YOUR

CAPPUCINO, YOUR LATTE, YOUR

AMERICANO, THAT SORT OF THI.

WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME IN MY

BASEMENT AND CORY'S APARTMENT AT

THE TIME DRAWING CRAZY THING

THE COMPUTER IN CAD TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT HOW NO BUILD

SOMETHING AND A LOT OF TIME ON

THE

WE DIDN'T WANT SOMET

AND STRANGE LOOKING.

WE WANTED IT TO BE ORGANIC AND

AESTHETIC.

>> ERIC BROUGHT THIS WHOLE

TECHNICAL MANUFACTURING ELEMENT

AND WE WORKED TOGETHER

TIRELESSLY THROUGH THAT

PROTOTYPE MACHINE THAT WE

WE GOT TO KNOW THEn

A COMPANY BASED OUT OF FLORENCE

>> IT'S BEEN MAKING

MACHINES FOR A BIT OVER 90 YEARS

NOW.

THEY ARE REALLY KNOWN FOR THEIR

QUALITY, FOR THEIR CUSTOMR

SERVICE, FOR THE RELIABILITY OF

THE MACHINE.

THEY ARE JUST AN ABSOLUTELY

FANTASTIC COMPANY.

AND GETTING TO KNOW A COUPLE OF

AND GETTING TO KNOW A COUPLE

THE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THAT

COMPANY THEY HELPED US LAUNCH

MOD BAR

SPLIT THINGS

UP INTO SEPARATE

TAPS THAT YOU CAN INSTALL ONE

COUNTER

>> WE'VE GOT FOUR DIFFERENT

PRODUCTS IN!, THE SHOWROOM HERE

WE'VE GOT THE NEWEST VERSION OF

OUR ESPRESSO MACHINE THAT WE

CALL THE ESPRESSO

IT'S THE WORKHORSE OF THE MOD

BAR LINE.

WE ALSO HAVE THE ORIGINAL

VERSION WHICH IS THE ESPRESSO

IT GIVES US EASIER CONTROL OVER

HOW THE COFFEE IS EXTRACTED.

WE CAN CREATE A PRESSURE PROFILE

WHERE

COURSE OF THE EXTRACTION.

AND WE HAVE A

THE MILK AND EQUIPMENT TO MAKE

POUR OVER COFFEE LIKE BREWED

COFFEE.

WE CAN PRODUCE UP TO ABOUT 50

MODULES A WEEK THAT'S ABOUT -

AND BECAUSE THE EQUIPMENT IS

MODULAR, YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU

THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE AREN'T

SELLING TO

BUT ONE PLACE MIGHT BUY FOUR

THINGS AND ONE PLACE MY BUY SIX

THINGS

HERE IN

COFFEE HERE WHICH THE COULD

FOUNDER OF BOD BAR STARTED HIS

OWN ROASTARY AND USES OUR

EQUIPMENT THERE SWEET WATER

SOUND HERE AS WELL.

BUT WE SPAN MOST OF THE U.S. AND

A LOT OF THE MAJOR METROPOLITAN

AREAS GLOBALLY AS WELL.

SEEING THE BUILDOUTS WHERE

THIS HUGE SENSE JOY IN THE,

PRODUCT LINE AT SOME POINT.

WE HAVE A GREAT TEAM OF PEOPLE

HERE.

IT'S REALLY IS A PLEASURE TO SEE

AMAZING THINGS WE ARE DOING

THROUGHOUT THE STATE NOW AND

IT'S GREAT, ESPECIALLY IN

Ft. WAYNE TO HAVE THAT

PRESENCE HERE IS SOMETHING THAT

MAKES ME REALLY PROUD TO HAVE

MOD BAR.

I THINK THERE IS ALSO A LOT

INNOVATION THAT'S

COFFEE ROASTER AS WELL AND AS A

BARISTA AND I LOVE ON WITH

COFFEE.

I LIKE

SENSORY RELATED AND WORKING INT

THE FACTORY AND DEVELOPING THE

MOD BAR EQUIPMENT WITH

OUREQUIPMENT WITH

PARTNERS WAS REALLY EXCITING.

HOWEVER, BEING IN FULL

PRODUCTION MODE WAS MORE

TECHNICAL KIND OF WORK

AND I REALLY WAS-

WITH COFFEE HANDS

ON.

WHEN I LEFTWORKING IN THE

OPERATIONS IN MOD BAR IN 2015

WHEN I HAD ALREADY PURCHASED THE

COFFEE

ROASTING"N2 COMMERCIALLY AND WE

OPENED THE FIRST CONJURE CAFE

>> AMAZING THING, COFFEE.

THE REASON MY WIFE

WITH THE NAME CONJURE.

BECAUSE THE DEFINITION IN A

SENSE WE LOOK AT IT FOR

WAS TO MAKE SOMETHING THINK

WHEN YOU ORDER A CUP OF COFFEE

AND POUR IT

OUT OF A CARAFE FOR YOU OR

PREPARE IT IN 30 SECONDS OR

LEFT, IT DOES SEEM TO COME FROM

NOWHERE.

BUT THE APT OFM TIME AND --

AMOUNT OF TIME, EFFORT AND

EXPERTISE AND THE NUMBER OF

HANDS THAT TOUCH EVERY CHERRY

EVERY CUP IS AN AMAZING AMOUNT

OF EFFORT.

BIG FANS OF AFRICAN COFFEE SO

IT'S HARD NOT TO BE AS HEAVY

AFRICAN COFFEE BUT WE LOVE

ETHIOPIA AND KENYA

AND WE REPRESENT SOUTH AND

CENTRAL AMERICA.

WE ARE TRYING TO HAVE

VARIETY OF REPRESENTING

DIFFERENT ORIGINS AROUND THE

WORLD FAIRLY EQUALLY.

WE ALWAYS POSITION MOD BAR, AND

WE OFFER IT TOOUR WHOLESALE

ACCOUNT.

FROM A MOD BAR FOUNDER AND

CONJURE IS A MOD BAR DISTRIBUTOR

AND A SERVICE POINT FOR IT AND A

AND A SERVICE POINT FOR IT AND A

BELIEVER IN THE TECHNOLOGY AND

EVERYTHING THAT IT DOES,

ESPECIALLY THE ABILITY TO

INTERACT WITH CUSTOMERS IN SUCH

A WAY YOU DON'T HAVE A HUGE

MACHINE IN BETWEEN YOU AND ME.

WE CAN HAVE A REAL CONVERSATION

WHILE WE ARE SERVING YOUR

COFFEE.

PEOPLE CAN WALK INTO A BEAUTIFUL

BRIGHT SPACE AND BE TAKEN AWAY

FROM WHATEVER NORMALCY THEY

EXPERIENCING IN THE DAY AND HAVE

A SPECIAL MOMENT AND ENJOY A

FANTASTIC COFFEE.

CITIES THAT HAVE GREAT AND

ACTIVE COFFEE CULTURE AND COMING

TO Ft. WAYNE AND BEING

IMPRESSED WITH THE QUALITY WE

CAN SERVE THEM WHEN THEY ARE

HERE.

PEOPLE AREN'T COMING TO COME TO

A TOWN LIKE OURS AND HAVE A

WORLD CLASS EXPERIENCE SO THAT'S

ALWAYS FUN.

>> WE ARE HOPING TO EXPAND

EVERYBODY'S OPINION OF WHAT

COFFEE IS AND CAN BE.

IT'S NOT THE SAME OL' FLAVOR

THE TIME AND

IT'S REASONABLE CROP.

IT'S CHANGING ALL THE TIME.

THE ENVIRONMENT WHERE THESE

THINGS ARE GROWN ARE CHANGING

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVIG

US TODAY

CIRCLE CITY TO CHECK OUT THE

MUSEUM OF PSYCH PHONICS

JACOB LINDAUER HAS THE STORY.

>> WELCOME TO THE MUSEUM OF

PSYCH PHONICS.

THE SOUND OF THE SOUL.

WE AIM TO BRING YOU INTO A PLACE

WHERE NORMALCY IS DISREGARDED.

THIS IS US

MECHANICAL GARDENS, PORTAL

THE IMAGINATION.

EVERYTHING THAT YOU WONDERED

ABOUT, SOUND SPIRITUAL

REAL SOUND SPIRITUAL

ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

YOU MAY FIND ANSWERS OR MORE

QUESTIONS.

THE IMPORTANT THING IS TO COME

>> WHEN WE PUT THE MUSEUM

TOGETHER IN

WHAT HAS BEEN THE

FORMER STORAGE SPACE OF A RED

SHOP WHICH WAS LOCATED RIGHT-

ACROSS THE HALL FROM OUR PRESENT

LOCATION IN FOUNTAIN SQUARE

IN DOWNTOWN INDIANAPOLIS.

AT THE GLORIOUS MURPHY BUILDING

WHICH IS A HUB FOR THE ARTS

COMMUNITY IN INDIANAPOLIS.

KAUFFMAN CAME UP WITH

THE IDEA OF CREATING A TINY

MUSEUM SPECIFICALLY TO SHOWCASE

MAIN OBJECTIVE INTEREST

WHICH IS THE BABY MOTHER SHIP

FUNKIDLIC.

HE WANTED TO CREATE A PLACE IN

INDIANAPOLIS THAT FOCUSED ON

SOME OF THEX>ñ MORE ESOTERIC

ASPECTS OF OUR LOCAL HISTORY

ALSO OUR CONNECTION WITH

AND AMERICAN CULTURE

>> EVER SINCE PROBABLY LATE IN

HIGH SCHOOL I HAVE BEEN OBSESSED

WITH MUSEUMS IN PARTICULAR THE

GERMAN WORD, CABINET WONDERS.

THROUGH THE YEARS I WANTED

I WAS TALKING TO A

MINE HERE IN INDIANAPOLIS, A

GENTLEMAN BI-

BATISTA HE WAS A STAGE HAND

FOR DAVID BOWIE AND PARLIAMENT

FUNKIDLIC.

I LEARNED HE HAD THE BABY

MOTHERSHIP IN STORAGE HERE IN

INDIANAPOLIS.

AND I KNEW QUITE A BIT ABOUT

BABY MOTHERSHIP AND HAD BEEN A

FAN OF BARRELMENT FUNKIDLIC FOR

A LONG -- PARLIAMENTIDLEIC FOR A

LONG TIME.

>> I REFER TO IT AS OUR MONA

>> I REFER TO IT AS OUR MONA

LISA.

IT'S THE MAIN ATTRACTION.

THE ONE OBJECT THAT PEOPLE LINE

UP OUTSIDE THE DOOR TO SEE.

IT'S A RELSTAGE PROP THAT WAS --

REAL STAGE PROP AND USED BY THE

BAND PARLIAMENT FUNKIDLIC.

THEY DID HUGE ARENA SHOWS WHERE

THEY WOULD TRAVEL AROUND THE

D-UNTRY AND PERFORM TO THESE

LARGE AUDIENCES.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WOULD PACK

THE STADIUMS TO SEE PARLIAMENT.

THE STAGE SHOWv: WAS FANTASTIC

SO INCREDIBLE.

THEY CREATED THIS VERY LIN

BASIC OLD TIMEY THEATER ILLUSION

WHERE IT IS A STUDY IN

PERSPECTIVE SOMETHING THAT'S

PERCEIVED AS FAR AND DISTANT SO

THE MOTHER SHIP THAT WOULD BE

FLOWN OUT ON A WIRE ABOVE THE

PEOPLE IN THE CROWD.

THE PYROTECHNICS SHOOTING OUT OF

IT.

SPOTLIGHTS ON IT AND THE CROWD

GOING WILD AND WOULD SAIL OVER

THEIRGexz HEADS AND DISAPPEAR

FOG CLOUD ABOVE THED

GRADUALLY THE LIGHTS WOULD

UP AND THE BIG VERSION OF THE

MOTHERSHIP WOULD DESCEND DOWN

AND LAND ON THE STAGE

AND LAND ON THE STAG

>> THE MUSEUM FOCUSES ON A

OF DIFFERENT NARRATIVES OR

DIFFERENT IDEAS THAT

AROUND THIS

FORCE.

IT'S PSYCH PHONIC THEME PSYCH

MIND, THE SOUND OF MIND, THE

IDEA THAT SOUND INFORMS YOUR

MIND AND THAT THERE IS ALSO

MAYBE THIS DEEPER MORE

MYSTERIOUS INTELLIGENCE THAT

UNIFYING SPREADS OF THE UE

AND OUR EXISTENCE AND THE IDEA

THAT IT'S SOUND THAT'S HOLDING

THINGS TOGETHER.

SO THERE IS A LOT OF REFERENCE

TO MUSIC.

BURGER KING ASHTRAY WHERE S

WAS SPOTTED AFTER HIS DEATH

KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN.

THERE ARE DIFFERENT POINTS IN

MUSICAL HISTORY AND06 BOTH HERE

AND"O BEYOND.

A LOT OF TIMES YOU CAN GO TO

MUSEUMS AND EVERYTHING IS

LABELED AND EVERYTHING ORDERED

HERE IS A TAXONOMY TO THE WE

EXPERIENCE.

AND THAT TAXONOMY IS FAIRLY

ARBITRARY.

IT'S AN/T ASSORTMENT OF HOW E

DECIDED TO CLASSIFY AND CATEGORY

THINGS AND I THINK THERE IS A

DANGER IN ACCEPTING THAT ALWAYS

WISDOM SO IF SOMETIMES MESSING

WITHhF% THAT TAXONOMY AND GETTIG

RID OF CERTAIN LABELS

COMBINING OBJECTS IN THE NEW WAY

IS AN IMPORTANT EXERCISE FOR US

TO THINK ABOUT THE WORLD IN A

NEW WAY.

THERE IS A DIDACTIC WHICH IS A

PRINTED NEWSPAPER THAT IS SORT

OF USUALLY WHEN YOU WALK INTO A

MUSEUMN READ THE DIDACTIC

FIRST AND TELLS YOU WHAT YOU ARE

ABOUT TO SEE

IDEA THAT YOU READ THE DIDACTIC

AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN TO THE

MUSEUM SO YOU CAN DRAW

CONCLUSIONS.

>> THE MAIN FUN PART IS WATCHING

PEOPLE'S REACTION.

WE HAVE CHILDREN.

WE HAVE

WE GET THE FULL SPECTRUM OF

CITIZENS THAT COME IN HERE AND

IT NEVER FAILS TO SORT OF PUT A

SMILE ON MY FACE TO SEE HOW

PEOPLE REACT TO IT ESPECIALLS

THEY WALK OUT AND READ THE

DIDACTIC AND TALKING TO EACH

OTHER ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE.

IT'S ALWAYS FUN TO HEAR WHAT ONE

THING STOOD OUT IN ONE PERSOS

MIND VERSUS WHAT SOMEBODY ELSE

NOTICE

>> SEE THE OPEN MIND AND, OPEN

HEART CAN COME IN THROUGH THIS

DOOR YOU WILL FIND SOMETHING

THAT WILL INSPIRE OR ENTERTAIN

THAT WILL INSPIRE OR ENTERTAIN

OR MAYBE JUST AMUSE YOU.

>> MICE COUGHLIN IS EXTREMELY

ADEPT AT MAKING CONNECTIONS WITH

PEOPLE IN OTHER PLACES AND HS

ESPECIALLY GOOD AT BRINGING

PEOPLE TO INDIANAPOLIS THAT HF

EXPAND OUR SENSE OF WHO WE ARE

INDIVIDUALS AND WHAT IS OUR

PLACE WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A

SMALLER CITY IN THE MID WEST

THAT

MANY THINGS THAT PEOPLE DON'T

READILY UNDERSTAND.

THE HISTORY OF INDIANAPOLIS AS A

BORING!.

WELL, IT CERTAINLY IS NOT BORING

AND IT NEVER WAS.

AND THE MUSEUM OF PSYCH PHONIC

IS ONE OF THOSE WAYS TO HELP

ILLUMIN THE PEOPLE OF

INDIANAPOLIS, AND THE MID WEST

AS A WHOLE.

AS A WHOLE.

>> THIS IS VERY INTERESTING

SPACE, BRANDAN.

I'M FASCINATED BY MUSEUMS THAT

ASK FOR QUESTIONS -- MORE

QUESTIONS THAN GIVE ANSWERS.
