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.

“Hypnotic and ludicrously addictive” - Guardian
Fixed a bug in iOS 10 that could cause playback and the Sleep Timer to accelerate when Play in Background is switched off.
Added an AirPlay button to the Settings screens.
Brian Eno : Reflection is now available from the App Store for iOS and Apple TV.

Our babies play Bloom, and so do their m&d.
Please give option to remove the self-advertisements??
I’ve been a fan of Bloom for 9 years. I wish SO much there were a way I could revert to a version where you don’t see the ad on the initial screen for the other apps by the same people. For me those ads, even though they’re small, are so distracting and against what I think the spirit and experience of Bloom should be. It’s frustrating. Please give an option not to see them - I would pay for it!
I’ve had this app since it’s release and use it almost every night to help calm down before falling asleep. The generative music and it’s programmed forever changing order is both soothing, the almost repetition leading to a sort of gnosis.
