Deluxe generative edition of Brian Eno's acclaimed 2017 ambient album, Reflection.
"REFLECTION is the most recent of my Ambient experiments and represents the most sophisticated of them so far. My original intention with Ambient music was to make endless music, music that would be there as long as you wanted it to be. I wanted also that this music would unfold differently all the time - ‘like sitting by a river’: it’s always the same river, but it’s always changing. But recordings - whether vinyl, cassette or CD - are limited in length, and replay identically each time you listen to them. So in the past I was limited to making the systems which make the music, but then recording 30 minutes or an hour and releasing that. REFLECTION in its album form - on vinyl or CD - is like this. But the app by which REFLECTION is produced is not restricted: it creates an endless and endlessly changing version of the piece of music.” - Brian Eno

Spring 2017 Update
Revolutionary Musical Ambiance
An incredible feat of musical 'composition', ambient architecting and the use of revolutionary computing techniques to create and endless, never the same composition.
Don't let its apparent simplicity fool you ! There was a lot going on before you even got it and there is some very clever new techniques at work when you use it, to have your own personal Brian Eno :)
The tools and the basis may be his, but the music is ... well, is it yours ? ... or is it his ? ... or both ? ... or neither ? :)
Well worth the price, which he has absorbed the daft Brexit App price increases for your benefit.
Fabulous to use with Mindful Meditation too.
Sigh I thought there would be something we could play with and make our own music.
Nice - but why so expensive (30 quid) ?
I somehow managed to convince myself that this was £2.99 and it wasn't till afterwards that I realised I had been charged £29.99 - in my opinion this really is a high charge for such an app. I would have wholly recommended it for the the lower price - it is a very interesting piece of art - and I have left it running for hours in the background - very good to snooze to for instance. The visuals are also quite interesting - they just morph very slowly - almost imperceptibly. Also going for a run with this on headphones worked for me also. I just hope for the 30 quid we get some updates from time to time.
