Air is a generative audio-visual work created by musician / software designer Peter Chilvers and Irish vocalist Sandra O’Neill. Based on concepts developed by Brian Eno, with whom Chilvers created Bloom, Air assembles vocal and piano samples into a beautiful, still and ever changing composition, which is always familiar, but never the same.
Air features four ‘Conduct’ modes, which let the user control the composition by tapping different areas on the display, and three ‘Listen’ modes, which provide a choice of arrangement. For those fortunate enough to have access to multiple iPhones and speakers, an option has been provided to spread the composition over several players.
Recommended for headphones and external speakers.
"Air is like 'Music for Airports' made endless - which is how I always wanted it to be" - Brian Eno

Soothing, tranquil and lovely
I listen to Air frequently both for its beauty and for the meditative state it creates.
A note about that special feature which activates when the app is played on multiple devices simultaneously: the effect is STUNNING, vastly more beautiful than I imagined it to be during the years I owned only one device.
It's quite limited compared to Music For Airports. But it is endless and randomic, so it's perfect for relaxing, meditation, insomnia (my case) and things like that.
Time to update
The screen looks awful. Please update!
