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.

Ratings and Reviews
We have a substantial Brian Eno playlist that we enjoy. So this app is really cool. Playing these sounds is hypnotic, fun and relaxing, whether it is generating its own ambient music or you are actively participating. Caveat: if you are not a fan of ambient music, you probably will find it only mildly interesting. If you are a Brian Eno fan (or similar), you will love it! Set the sleep timer and drift away...
Make music and visual art while falling into the ambient drones Brian Eno is famous for. Peaceful.
Excellent composition tool
This app will definitely help your creative flow if you are a songwriter. Most of the melodies end up in G major, but it's still helpful for creating melodies and ear training.
