Google Blob Opera

Create your own opera inspired song with Blob Opera - no music skills required! Blob Opera is a machine learning experiment by David Li in collaboration with Google Arts & Culture that let’s anyone compose opera type music in a web browser.

Google Blob Opera is a fun experiment that uses four colorful blobs that you control to create music. Each of the four animated blobs sings in a different tone; tenor, bass, mezzo‑soprano, and soprano sounds that automatically harmonize with each other.

The experiment starts with a brief tutorial, then you start by dragging a blob up or down (changes the pitch) and moving them back and forth (changes the vowel sound). 
If you’re satisfied with your musical creation you can record it with the click of a button in the bottom left corner.
If you aren’t feeling very musical, the blobs can perform popular Christmas music with the click of a button in the bottom right corner.  

Consisting of tenor, bass, mezzo‑soprano, and soprano sounds comprised of four opera singers who recorded 16 hours of singing, Google created an engaging experiment for everyone, regardless of musical skills.
