Brian Eno, musician, producer and visual artist, teamed up with his longtime collaborator Peter Chilvers to create and display Bloom: Open Space, an audio-visual installation in Amsterdam.

The installation was based on the duo’s app Bloom, a unique experience that allows users to create melodies by simply tapping their screens. According to the installation’s website, Bloom: Open Space “blurs the lines between the physical and virtual, exploring uncharted territory in the realms of both applications and generative art.”

The installation, which is enabled by Microsoft HoloLens, brings the app to life by allowing the users to step into a real world zone, surrounded by screens, where they can tap the air around themselves to create interesting and beautiful melodies.

The installation was open in Amsterdam from February 21 to 25.
