For five years Elliot Cole has been developing Bloom, a music practice and software tool based in deep listening, chance, and pattern. His related compositions range from virtuosic guitar music to haunting bowed vibraphone quartets, and are some of his most popular, garnering over 300 performances in 20 countries.
