230-Ft Sea Organ In Croatia Uses Waves To Create Weirdly Beautiful Music
When you have an ugly concrete seashore hailing from post-WWII reconstruction efforts, how can you make it better? Simple! Make it into a sea-organ. This 230-feet long marvel is located on the coast near the Croatian town of Zadar. It harnesses the water and winds of the Adriatic sea to create random, but beautiful, music.
The sea-organ is known as “morske orgulje” in Croatian. It was designed by architect Nikola Basic and opened to the public in 2005. The music is generated as wind and water enter the pipes on the concrete stairs and go into resonant chambers. The sounds exit through the wholes at the top, and that’s why you can find a lot of children listening to the aquatic music with their ear against the concrete.
