Music for USB ports
Generative Music reports: [edited]
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.

Brett's 2p'orth: If anyone can make this work, the man who created Music for Airports can. And at £2.39 it costs pretty much the same as the vinyl LP I bought in 1978 :-)
