Dec 18th 2012, UK: Intermorphic Ltd today releases Tiklbox, a free 'Inmo' Generative Music Player, with the first two in-app purchaseable albums being "Calm" and "Relax". There have been many apps for "Sit-forward" (PC/Mobile screens) and "Lean-back" (TV) experiences. With its first two albums Tiklbox is an app for "Sit-down" or "Lie-down" (relaxation and reflection) experiences.
Prior to a purchase, the first 2 tracks from the "Calm" album are available and Tiklbox will play for 12 minutes before it goes to sleep – plenty of time for a user to chill out. To hear the rest of the "Calm" album or the "Relax" album, to set the sleep timer or to never have Tiklbox time out, then it is a simple in-app purchase of the desired album.
'Inmo' generative music, or simply plain 'inmo music' is generated “in the moment” on a mobile phone, tablet or other device by apps utilising a unique blend of rule-based generative techniques & varied music tech. It is primarily experienced on your own personal portable device meaning it is personal for you – no one else hears exactly the same as you. It is also granular as it is made without the use of big audio loops and it's ideal for relaxation, reflection, mindfulness and quiet contemplation.
A big aspect of inmo music is that, if you want to, you can make it yourself and customise every aspect of it. All tracks in Tiklbox were authored in Noatikl. You can make your own inmo music with the Noatikl and Mixtikl apps.
Tiklbox is a universal binary for Apple® iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch® and is available free on the App Store.

Intermorphic Ltd was co-founded in 2007 by Tim Cole and Pete Cole. It develops creativity & relaxation ("creative relaxation") apps that use generative & cut-up techniques and builds them to help people both create ideas and to relax and enjoy the moment. The multi BAFTA Award-winning Cole brothers ("the Coles") have a history in music software innovation: they co-founded SSEYO in 1990 and from then to 2001 they created and worked on the "SSEYO Koan Music Engine", a "Generative Music" system used by Brian Eno for his seminal 1996 "Generative Music 1". SSEYO Koan software was available for Windows, Mac and Windows Mobile and in a range of variants from Standalone to Audio Plugin to Web Browser Plugin. Following Tao Group's acquisition of SSEYO in 2001, the Coles created the intent Sound System (iSS) and "SSEYO miniMIXA", one of the world's first mobile music mixers. Intermorphic secured the IP rights to the iSS and SSEYO software in Q2 2008. In 2007 it released both "Noatikl: Generative Music Composer" (the evolution to SSEYO Koan) and "Liptikl: Cut-Up Text Writer". This was followed in 2008 by "Mixtikl: Generative Music Mixer" and in 2012 by "Tiklbox: Generative Music Player". After many years deliberating on the next step forward for Generative Music the Coles decided that it was "Reflective Music" and so in 2014 came the first of the "Wotja® : Generative Music Suite" releases. By 2017 the key authoring capabilities of Noatikl, Mixtikl and Liptikl had been fully consolidated into Wotja for iOS and Wotja for macOS (AKA 'Wotja A'), including the playlisting of Tiklbox. February 2018 saw the first release of "Wotja X", a cross-platform UI variant that finally allowed Wotja to be available for all of Windows, macOS, iOS and Android. In April 2018 came the V5.4 release where Wotja X finally achieved major feature parity with Wotja for iOS/macOS.
