Blooms a generative music application for iOS created by Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers.[1][2] The software plays a low drone, and touching the screen produces different tones, which play in a loop. If the screen is left untouched, the software will create its own music.[3]

Eno and Chilvers have since released a related app named trope and another in 2012 named Scape.
