Brian Eno’s music app Bloom is back and updated

Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers - 10 years ago - launched their Bloom app for iPhone. It was a creative tool for "generative" music: when the app was left idle, it would start creating its own melodies and visuals.

Now the app is returning with a new version called "Bloom: 10 Worlds", which will be available on Android as well as iOS.

A promo blurb explains:

Bloom: 10 Worlds is a reimagining of the original – not simply a remaster. If the original Bloom was a single, then this would be an album. The first world the user encounters is an echo of the original app, with circles appearing where the user taps, while the later worlds each introduce new combinations of sounds, shapes, colours and rules of behaviour.

The app is using a paid model: it’ll cost $4.99 at launch before shifting to $7.99 afterwards.
