iLooch is an iPhone/iPod-touch application designed to generate evolving ambient sounds. The music is not "sampled"; it is instead created by generative and algorithmic rule-sets coupled with various synthesis techniques. They'll go on forever and ever! (well, at least for a few hours...) Because the music is being constructed on-the-fly, each time it plays it will be slightly different. Such is life.
