Brian Eno. Bloom co-creator and lead developer Peter Chilvers calls the mixed reality experience "magical": "I don't think anyone's experienced anything like that before. A view of the Bloom: Open Space exhibition during set-up.

The Bloom: 10 Worlds app by Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers is a reimagining of the original – not simply a remaster - 10 years after the first release. If the original Bloom was a single, then this would be an album. The widely broadened palette of sounds and images can be experienced via 10 new worlds, each exploring a new direction for Bloom. The first world the user encounters is an echo of the original app, with circles appearing where the user taps, while the later worlds each introduce new combinations of sounds, shapes, colors and rules of behavior.

These can be endlessly recombined to behave intelligently: reacting to each other, changing mood together, making new sonic spaces. Can machines create original music? Scape is our answer to that question: it employs some of the sounds, processes and compositional rules that we have been using for many years and applies them in fresh combinations, to create new music. Scape makes music that thinks for itself. Brian Eno, Peter Chilvers.

The app is designed to be Part instrument, part composition and part artwork. You can play it interactively by touching the screen, but it also can be allowed to play generatively on its own.

Brian Eno later adopted the idea for his ambient albums, most notoriously, Music for Airports. When the album was finally played at an airport people complained of nameless, gnawing anxieties - not what one needs moments before boarding an aeroplane. Now Eno, along with his collaborator Peter Chilvers, has taken Satie's notion of an endless composition to its logical conclusion with Bloom. Bloom could be regarded as an album in which you, the listener, are also the composer. It is a computer programme written for the iPhone and iPod Touch that presents users with a blank screen and a low.

Developed by ambient pioneer Brian Eno and musician, software designer Peter Chilvers, Bloom explores uncharted territory in the realm of applications for the iPhone and iPod touch. Part instrument, part composition and part artwork, Bloom's innovative controls allow anyone to create elaborate patterns and unique melodies by simply tapping the screen. A generative music player takes over when Bloom is left idle, creating an infinite selection of compositions and their accompanying visualisations. 12 different mood settings.

Notes

A generative music app created specifically for Apple's iPad. Developed by Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers, 'Bloom HD' is available at iTunes App Store (visit generativemusic.com for details).

The app provides both a "Listen" mode, for passive listening, and a "Create" mode which enables interaction and provides options for compositional input. Several other options are available that affect its generated compositions and overall sound in both "Listen" and "Create" modes.

On February 27, 2016 Peter Chilvers posted the following at his website (peterchilvers.com):

"Bloom, my first app with Brian Eno has been given a complete interface redesign for iOS 8, and is available now to existing users as a free update. Bloom HD on the iPad also has improved graphics."

Description
Bloom, the acclaimed app by ambient pioneer Brian Eno and musician / software designer Peter Chilvers has been fully reworked to take advantage of the iPad’s larger screen.

As part of the first wave of applications for the iPhone and iPod touch in 2008, Bloom redefined musical boundaries. Part instrument, part composition and part artwork, Bloom's innovative controls allow anyone to create elaborate patterns and unique melodies by simply tapping the screen. A generative music player takes over when Bloom is left idle, creating an infinite selection of compositions and their accompanying visualisations.

Bloom HD preserves the sounds and features of the original version, but adds a stylish new interface which allows the user to fully immerse themselves in the fullscreen experience or to continue to play on a smaller area while adjusting controls.

"Bloom is an endless music machine, a music box for the 21st century. You can play it, and you can watch it play itself."
