Driven by wind and waves this organ creates notes at random. Despite the unpredictability of when notes are sounded, overall what is heard is surprisingly harmonious. This happens because the different organ pipes have been carefully tuned to only produce certain musical notes that sound good together.
The sculpture is seventy meters long and has thirty-five organ pipes built under the concrete; as you move along the promenade the sounds and harmonies change. The movement of the waves and wind push air in and out of the organ pipes to create the notes. It was designed by architect Nikola Bašić
The coastal town of Zadar, Croatia is home to a set of incredible public art installations that harness the waves and the sun where the waterfront meets the Adriatic Sea. Installed after the shore front's renovation in 2005, the "Sun Salutation" is a massive public pavilion emblazoned with a circle of photovoltaic cells interspersed with LEDs that burst into light when the sun sets.
