There have been several odd synchronicities since I started covering the news. Previously the wildest was the Thursday two people wrote in with two different site suggestions that I had been planning on implementing, but had been putting off.
This tops that by a mile. Just yesterday I discovered Brian Eno's Bloom app, which had been out since October 2008.
Today he releases his second app. Spooky! The Mayans were right!
Before the Apocalypse in December, you can explore this app which is part generative music experiment and part album.
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."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
