  • An audiovisual installation created by Brian Eno and his longtime collaborator Peter Chilvers, called Bloom: Open Space, will open to the public for five days later this month at Transformatorhuis in Amsterdam. Described as a "mixed reality" installation, the project is based on the generative music app Bloom that Eno and Chilvers first developed 10 years ago. It was built in partnership with Microsoft using the company's HoloLens smartglasses. We're told that those entering the exhibit "will step into a central zone surrounded by screens, where they can physically experience Bloom—tapping the air around them to create elaborate patterns paired with unique melodies composed by Brian Eno." Bloom: Open Space will be open from February 21st through the 25th, 2 PM to 10 PM each day. Watch a preview video for the installation.
