Brian Eno Releases New iPhone App, Trope

Before David Bowie and T-Pain capsulated their art into iPhone apps, Brian Eno created Bloom. The 2008 app, "part instrument, part composition and part artwork," found fans in Paste, The Swell Season, and NPR's Bob Boilen, amongst many others.

Now, Eno seeks to set his standards even higher with its follow-up, Trope. Once again, the godfather of ambient teamed up with software designer Peter Chilvers to add creative leeway to its original design. This time, more drones and pads lend to an overall darker sound, though additional colors and patterns also brighten the experience.

Trope, like its predecessor, costs $3.99 through Apple.
