Now your iPhone can play its own music - as ambient muscians Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers have just released Bloom, a generative music tool that displays artwork as it rolls its way through its own ambient sound loops.

Like the Sseyo tools that Eno used in the past, the screen is a composition tool, letting you create the starting patterns for sounds and art.
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.
Quite, quite relaxing.

I think I may try it out on my next long flight...


Back off, I'm doing science!


Someone has done a really amazing job on a large range of retro-future shirts. It's clothing from right out of The Gernsback Continuum!
