Listen To The Music Of The Sea In Croatia

The sound of the sea now makes its own music in the ancient coastal city of Zadar in Croatia.

A 230 foot long instrument, on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, known as the Morske Orgulje or the Sea Organ turn the waves of the sea into a soothing melody.

Intricate harmonies are produced when the waves crash against the marble steps that leads into the Adriatic Sea. Carved into the steps are narrow channels that lap up the waves and channel them inside, where there are 35 organ pipes, each tuned to a different musical chord.

The waves and wind enter the organ slits, and goes through the channels and produces a haunting melody. The music is produced randomly by the wave's random time and space distribution.

Designed and conceived in 2005 by architect Nikola Basic, the 230 foot sprawling structure won the European Prize for Urban Public Space in 2006.

It is hypnotic to watch the sun set over the Adriatic Sea with the ocean creating its own musical compositions.
