SEA ORGAN IN ZADAR, CROATIA
The Sea Organ in Zadar, Croatia was implemented in April 2005. Promoted by local authorities and businesses, it is a permanent installation, attracting residents and tourists on a regular basis.
In the audio example you can hear the sounds created by the pipes of the Sea Organ.
This mechanical installation with musical features is built into the seaside promenade. The sea waves drive air into a system of pipes similar to a mouth harp, producing the never-ending exchange of C major and G major chords. The project was conceived within the wider effort to revitalise the neglected part of the historical city centre, next to the new cruise ships pear on the top of the peninsula. Noise complaints from the nearby residential building apparently have no influence on the management of the installation.
