Zadar Sea Organ, powered by lapping waves of Adriatic Sea – National Geographic Video

zadar sea organ 

Zadar’s Sea Organ a real music instrument built into Zadar‘s harbor and sea front is now the subject of a video by National Geographic, and features an interview with Croatian architect Nikola Baši?, who explains how it was planned and designed.

It also features the haunting music it creates, which, coupled with the waves, leaves us drifting off to sleep. 

The Sea Organ is seventy meters long with about thirty five organ pipes built in concrete. The pipes are located so that the sea water and wind movements produce sounds that are heard by passers by so that it achieves a communication with nature and promotes a unity of architecture and environment. As sea forces and energies are unpredictable in terms of tides and winds, this organ offers never-ending concert of numerous music variations in which the performer is nature itself.
