Brian Eno Apps For iPhone
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Brian Eno has a series of really cool apps for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch by Opal Limited.

Brian Eno Bloom App
BLOOM – A music box for the 21st century

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.

Features

– 12 different mood settings
– Random mood shuffle
– Adjustable delay
– Shake to clear
– Evolve when idle
– Sleep Timer

“Bloom is an endless music machine, a music box for the 21st century. You can play it, and you can watch it play itself.” – Brian Eno

Brian Eno Trope App
TROPE – One of the newest forms of Sonema

Trope, designed by ambient pioneer Brian Eno and musician / software designer Peter Chilvers, expands further on the ideas introduced by Bloom, their acclaimed iPhone application. Darker in tone, Trope immerses users in endlessly evolving soundscapes created by tracing abstract shapes onto the screen, varying the tone with each movement.

“Trope is a different emotional experience from Bloom – more introspective, more atmospheric. It shows that generative music, as one of the newest forms of sonema, can draw on a broad palette of moods.” – Brian Eno

Brian Eno Air App
AIR – An endless Music For Airports

Air is a generative audio-visual work created by musician / software designer Peter Chilvers and Irish vocalist Sandra O’Neill. Based on concepts developed by Brian Eno, with whom Chilvers created Bloom, Air assembles vocal and piano samples into a beautiful, still and ever changing composition, which is always familiar, but never the same.

Air features four ‘Conduct’ modes, which let the user control the composition by tapping different areas on the display, and three ‘Listen’ modes, which provide a choice of arrangement. For those fortunate enough to have access to multiple iPhones and speakers, an option has been provided to spread the composition over several players.

“Air is like ‘Music for Airports’ made endless – which is how I always wanted it to be” – Brian Eno

Ambient Drones For iPhone

Ambient Drones For iPhone

Droneo will bathe your ears with rich polyphonic textures!

Droneo is a synthesizer which drones with various timbres and precise intonations that blur the distinction between tones, timbres and chords. Its drone is great for meditation, centering, and calming, walking and biking, but also can be set up for discordant noise and insect-like buzzing and chirping.

Skip to about 3:30 mins in for the sweet spot =)

With Droneo, you can create surprisingly rich, motion filled drones which change over time in a controlled way.
Quietly nested in your earbuds or blasted though your stack of amps, Droneo fills your droning needs!

Droneo uses 8 voices (“reeds”) which can be precisely and individually tuned, randomly detuned,
chorused, and modulated. The relative pitch and volume of each reed can be set individually, making for a wide variety of drones.
These “reeds” use various timbres suitable for drones, including vocal-like timbres and evolving, dynamically generated timbres.

The settings for all the intervals can be visualized and manipulated using
a special “Tone spiral” interface.

Droneo is also an excellent way to play with the way chords fuse into timbres — which is why there’s such a heavy emphasis on interval specification.
You can get a feel for how certain timbres fit “naturally” in certain frequency ranges, and how tunings and timbres and chords intertwine.
