Recording the Sea Organ

‘Morske Orgulje’ – Sea Organ located in Zadar, Croatia became of particular interest to the GSM as, along with this incredible instrument being unique, it is played by the environment and forms part of the local ambience.

The Sea Organ is essentially ‘played’ by the tidal movement of the Adriatic Sea. Waves fill pipes and force air through chambers creating pitches and harmonies.

As the movement of the sea is never the same, there is a continual, never ending soundtrack to this city provided by nature.
The sound you can hear in this installation is a composition created by the environment and audience through the ‘Sea Organ’
