Ambient Music pioneer Brian Eno, along with musician/software designer Peter Chilvers, have released a new iPhone music app, Trope, that expands on ideas introduced with their previous generative music app, Bloom:
Darker in tone, Trope immerses users in endlessly evolving soundscapes created by tracing abstract shapes onto the screen, varying the tone with each movement. Recommended for headphones and external speakers.
“Trope is a different emotional experience from Bloom – more introspective, more atmospheric,” explains Eno. “It shows that generative music, as one of the newest forms of sonema, can draw on a broad palette of moods.”
Trope is available for $3.99 in the iTunes App store.
