Scape makes music that thinks for itself. From Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers, creators of Bloom, Scape is a new form of album which offers users deep access to its musical elements. These can be endlessly recombined to behave intelligently: reacting to each other, changing mood together, making new sonic spaces.
Can machines create original music? Scape is our answer to that question: it employs some of the sounds, processes and compositional rules that we have been using for many years and applies them in fresh combinations, to create new music. Scape makes music that thinks for itself.

The Ship is the twenty-fifth solo studio album by English musician Brian Eno, released on 29 April 2016 on Warp Records. It was announced on Eno's website on 24 February 2016. The album is Eno's first solo album to contain vocals since 2005's Another Day on Earth. The Ship debuted at number 28 on the UK Albums Chart and is the second highest-charting solo album of Eno's solo career after debut Here Come The Warm Jets. The album received critical acclaim. Or, as Brian Eno once said, perhaps it is our grandchildren who will be the baffled ones. Scape, a musical app developed by Eno alongside composer and programmer Peter Chilvers, is a kind of album that will never sound the same twice. It's a continuation of Eno's work with generative music, compositions which change every time they're played as the systems behind them introduce some kind of randomness. The description of Scape as music that thinks for itself imbues computers with a kind of creative responsibility, which might seem a contentious notion.

Brian Enos Scape Asks Can Machines Create Original Music Opal has released Scape a new generative music application, created by Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers. Heres what they have to say about Scape: Scape is a new form of album which offers users deep access to its musical elements. Can machines create original music Scape is our answer to that question: it employs some of the sounds, processes and compositional rules that we have been using for many years. Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno, RDI ˈiːnoʊ born Brian Peter George Eno, 15 May 1948 is an English musician, record producer, visual artist, and theorist best known for his pioneering work in ambient music and contributions to rock, pop and electronica. A self-described non-musician, Eno has helped introduce unique conceptual approaches and recording techniques to contemporary music. He has been described as one of popular music's most influential and innovative figures. Pereptual innovator Brian Eno has developed a new iPad app for composing music. With Scape, users create atmospheric soundscapes using a pallet of on-screen building blocks of various shapes and colors. Each element triggers a unique piece of sound- drone, melody, percussion, or texture- which all respond intelligently to each other, as demonstrated in the video, below. Users also control the work's key, scale, and tone, and can save work. Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers have collaborated on a series of short flims to accompany 'Mixing Colours', Eno's first collaborative album with brother Roger. Eno and Chilvers have worked together for many years, notably on interactive apps such as Bloom, Scape, Trope and, most recently, Bloom: 10 Worlds. Their films for Mixing Colours distil the albums essence, marrying the simplicity and contemplative qualities of its soundscapes with suitably uncomplicated, mesmerising imagery of slowly-changing, dreamlike panoramas.

I might retire, now I've found a way to make myself redundant, chuckles Brian Eno, fairly early on in our conversation in his West London studio. Hold the headlines, though. Eno is neither redundant nor packing in the day job. But working with his collaborator Peter Chilvers, he has released an app called Scape that enables any iPad owner to create generative music with some of his own compositional tools and sounds.
