When art and music combine, the results are often impressive. Such is the case with the ‘sea organ’ in Zadar, Croatia in Europe. This experimental instrument of sorts relies on waves from the sea to enter tubes under the coastal steps. By doing so, they create random yet harmonic sounds.

You see, after WWII the sea front was heavily damaged and was hastily repaired. As a result, there was only an unbroken and boring concrete wall by the shore. Back in the early 2000’s, there was a project to redesign Zadar’s coast and the sea organ was a part of that. Created by the architect Nikola Bašić, it has been open to the public since April of 2005 and draws both tourists and locals alike to its strange harmonies.
