Scape makes music that thinks for itself. From Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers, creators of Bloom, Scape is a new form of album which offers users deep access to its musical elements. These can be endlessly recombined to behave intelligently: reacting to each other, changing mood together, making new sonic spaces.
Can machines create original music? Scape is our answer to that question: it employs some of the sounds, processes and compositional rules that we have been using for many years and applies them in fresh combinations, to create new music. Scape makes music that thinks for itself.

I like all the Enossificated apps. I have Bloom and Trope and really like them too. But Scape is a cut above. And now it's even better because you can flex your imagination naming your own Scapes.
You know, it's not for everyone. There's not a hard beat anywhere. But for those who crave mellowness and the loveliness of subtle sound textures there really isn't anything to beat this.
A sheer delight
Scape is the result of a collaboration between Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers, and it progresses Eno's idea of "generative music", i.e. making music from the interactions between various programmatic elements. The app allows you to choose background moods to give an overall feel to a song, onto which you drop "instruments" which create the rhythmic and melodic tones.
The resulting ambient soundscapes are truly remarkable - you can create terrific pieces within minutes of installing this app, and the more you use it the more elements are made available, so the app grows as you explore it.
Scape is a wonderful creative experience, and is the most used app on my iPad. Don't miss it.
