Bloom represents a brilliant fusion of Brian Eno's ideas about "generative music" with the computing power and mobility of an iOS device, courtesy of software designer Peter Chilvers, a fine composer in his own right. It was innovative when it was first released several years ago, and thankfully Chilvers has now updated it to be compatible with iOS 10. You could regard this as a sort of infinite album: a software engine that you can either customize or leave to its own devices, which will endlessly create a kind of music that Eno has, at different times, called ambient, generative, and "thinking music." The music never exactly repeats itself, though of course it's restricted in other ways by the specific design of the software and the limited number of sound-types available. If you've ever enjoyed the work of Eno and others in this vein, I highly recommend Bloom.

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.

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 downloaded several generative music apps. Bloom was one of them. Unfortunately the loan was a paid app right off the bat where as the others gave trials. The app that I downloaded and like the most is and Endel. Endel is much more complex in the sounds that it generates in the textures that it creates. I find Endel much more enjoyable to listen to then Bloom. Bloom is very sublime, and generates an ambience rather than an engaging musical exploration or experience.
