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.

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


- 12 different mood settings
- Random mood shuffle
- Adjustable delay
- Shake to clear
- Evolve when idle
- Sleep Timer

Recommended for headphones or external speakers.

Ratings and Reviews

Beautiful artistic app


Ok, first of all sorry for my English. Second one, since I saw that Eno was involved on the develop of this app I downloaded it right away.

Clean, simple (and complex concept if you want). You just touch the screen and hear the note (from grave to high pitch depending on the place) and they will loop over a smooth pad that it was already there and all this at the same time you see the points were you touch it forming an unique image for every melody.

It is visiual and musical. Don't be surprise if your girlfriend, wife, etc.,tells you that you touch more your iPod than her LOL.

And yes, consider that this review is based on an app made for a mobile device (iphone/ipod touch) so, sure this is just a part of what it could be.

For last, it would be awsome if Fripp would like to accept to put some of his frippertonics sounds onto this app and mix them with the ones it comes.

And why not to add a slide option, you slide your finger, it leaves a trace of the movement and the sound produces a pitch.


Very nice


If your a fan of Eno's ambient works then you will probably like this app a lot. A very clean and simple interface allows you to make your own little ambient tunes. The sounds are nice but limited.
No way to export that I could find.

Very nice, playful, exploration of sound


Very well done, clean interface, fun to explore and play with. Soothing yet fun. Clean UI and understandable options screen. The names of the "themes" make no sense, and you might not use it over the very long term, but otherwsie a great app and defintiely worth exploring. Wish you could adjust the colour. Worth $3.99, yes. 4/5.
