iPad Screenshots


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." - Brian Eno

Bloom by Eno


I luv it, fabulous app, for musicians and non musicians alike... So relaxing to play... Thank you Eno... X

Composing heaven

Caitlin Matthews

I can play this app like a piano and compose endlessly because I know where my fingers are going. By choosing the different modes, you can compose in different keys and shades of colour. The soundscape builds up easily but also takes some skill, which is what I love. The only draw-back is the app has no feature whereby you can record your compositions and play them again. Please, Eno and Chilvers, add this feature, I beg you!

Even better than the iPhone version...


Great as a background when working or to just fall asleep too.

The 'active artwork' aspect works even better on the screen real estate of the iPad - well worth purchasing.

Only negative comment would be that the volume could be louder (but this might be an ipad issue rather than a Bloom one...).
