Additional Information

Introduction

Built for the most part out of stone, the Wave Organ channels the music of the ocean, and merges it with sounds gathered from land and then amplifies the harmony through acoustic technology. A jetty near San Francisco's Exploratorium contains this product created through a collaboration between artist Peter Richards and sculptor George Gonzales. Stones used in the construction were sourced from a cemetery dating from the Gold Rush times. The construction features a series of pipes that all copy the appearance and function of a church organ. The climax of this natural symphony occurs at dawn, as high tide approaches. Come up to one of the listening stations to awaken with nature and revel in the sacred, hypnotic auditory fusion of land and sea.
