“Bloom: Open Space,” is an art and music installation created by the influential producer and music pioneer Brian Eno and his frequent collaborator, the musician and software designer Peter Chilvers. It was situated inside an enormous warehouse in the Westergasfabriek, a city park and cultural complex in Amsterdam that was once a gas factory from February 21-25, 2018.
Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers are among the first major musical artists to explore the artistic potential of immersive technologies developed primarily for the video game industry. Other musicians, such as Thom Yorke of Radiohead and Tarik Barri, are entering this “immersive” realm, using tools such as virtual reality headsets, holographic mixed-reality goggles, and immersive surround-sound systems.
Bloom: Open Space, is a generative audio-visual installation brought to life with Microsoft HoloLens. Based on the award-winning app, Bloom, from GenerativeMusic.com the innovative mixed reality installation blurs the lines between the physical and virtual, exploring uncharted territory in the realms of both applications and generative art.
