The Blobs are back and teaming up with Beethoven

After a world tour and live performance at last year’s Google I/O, everyone’s favorite singing Blobs are back for a brand new experience. This time around they’re bringing you classical music like you’ve never heard it before, in Google Arts & Culture’s latest game, Blob Beats.

In this rhythm-based game players take control of the Blobs and are challenged to play iconic compositions remixed in an arcade style. Hit the falling notes at the right time to play a classical masterpiece and score as many points as possible to maximize your high score. Progress through the difficulty levels as you develop from amateur to virtuoso and take a moment in-between your masterpieces to learn some fun facts about the composers who created them.

We hope you’ll enjoy discovering and playing iconic compositions through these experiments, which can both be found on our Beethoven Everywhere theme page, alongside an extensive collection of stories, music and art about the composer and his legacy, plus you can hear the piano sonata collection in its entirety on YouTube Music.

More music on Google Arts & Culture

Now that you’ve gotten closer to Beethoven, why not uncover other musical icons on Google Arts & Culture such as the king of reggae Bob Marley, Brazilian icon Gilberto Gil, romantic pianist Chopin, or discover comfort through Culture with Yo-Yo Ma. You can keep getting creative with sound through more musical experiments from the Google Arts & Culture Lab such as Paint with Music, Assisted Melody, and AR Synth — part of our Music, Makers and Machines project. Or keep on playing with our collection of cultural games at g.co/artgames or in the Play tab ( ) within the Google Arts & Culture app for Android and iOS.
