This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Trope, designed by ambient pioneer Brian Eno and musician / software designer Peter Chilvers, expands further on the ideas introduced by Bloom, their acclaimed iPhone application.  Darker in tone, Trope immerses users in endlessly evolving soundscapes created by tracing abstract shapes onto the screen, varying the tone with each movement.

Recommended for headphones and external speakers.

"Trope is a different emotional experience from Bloom - more introspective, more atmospheric. It shows that generative music, as one of the newest forms of sonema, can draw on a broad palette of moods." - Brian Eno

What's New in Version 1.3

Trope has been given a complete interface redesign for iOS 8. It is now a Universal app, and runs natively on the iPad as well as the iPhone.

Customer Reviews

Lovely app, lately afflicted by a bug

Trope is, along with Bloom and Reflection, a wonderful collaboration between Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers, fusing Eno's ideas about "generative music" with the computing power and portability of iOS devices. Compared to Bloom, Trope is more flowing though perhaps a bit darker.

Unfortunately, as of iOS 10 this app seems to have developed a bug that speeds up the sleep timer and may also affect playback. While I recommend all these Eno/Chilvers apps very strongly, I'd suggest waiting for this to be patched.

Love it

Warm, therapeutic, adult play, and--why not kids? They'd love it even if attention span would keep it short.
Opens creative doors--the simplicity and perhaps even limited or focused direction of these glorious Eno apps are an asset, not a limitation.

So soothing...

I let it develop for hours and hours, it keeps changing and is as interesting as it is ignorable...
