Scape makes music that thinks for itself. From Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers, creators of Bloom, Scape is a new form of album which offers users deep access to its musical elements. 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

What's New in Version 1.1
Name your scapes.
Updated for iOS 7.
I purchased this based on my good times with Bloom. Great follow-up? Spent hours just building and tweaking. It relaxes me. I'd ask for a few more sounds along the minimalistic lines but that's it. Perhaps some ambient space themes. But what do I know. The interface is simplistic which forces me not to complicate but rather immerse and enjoy?
Name your scape
Already a great app for those that enjoy ambient music and/or creativity. The new update allows you to NAME each new scape you create, opening up a whole new level of expression and fun. This feature should have been in the original version, but it's here now. I find the generated sound collages excellent as background music while working. The app is also enjoyable for more focused scape creation.
A little stale...
Same bank of cheesy new age sounds that have been around since late 80s... and graphics to match. If that's what you're looking for, then you'll love this.
Almost no control over the evolution of the 'scape' and documentation is completely absent.
Overall, the music and visuals seem to be stuck in another decade.. kinda like that person you know who looked in the mirror 25 years ago and said, "ahh...there's my look" and never moved on.
I know this is a little harsh. Obviously a ton of work and thought went into it. But, if I were an artist on the receiving end of such a review, I'd find it helpful.
