An Organ Powered By The Sea Produces Music That Sounds Like Silent Hill (Random Cool)

seaorganbanner

On the shores of Zadar, Croatia is a really cool musical invention: an organ that is powered by the sea. Created by Nikola Basic in 2005, what’s happening is that there are several white stone steps that lead into the water. However, underneath these steps are 35 musically tuned tubes that whistle through openings in the ground. When waves hit the tubes, it pushes air through the tubes and, lo and behold, music comes out.

But what’s interesting is that music that comes forth sounds eerily similar to the Silent Hill music of Akira Yamaoka. Head below for a sample or go to this page for more samples and a better history of the project.

    Imagine being there on a very clody/foggy day, then you will really thin you’re in Silent Hill 😀

      Right?! That would be terrifying yet awesome!

    Imagine standing there with that music playing and suddenly an air raid siren starts going off

    that’s a pretty interesting way to utilize nature. it IS kinda creepy and hell yes! i’d love to be there on a really dark and foggy day! lol. it’s kinda sad though that this video (thanks entirely on the sound/music) has more atmosphere and creepiness than most horror movies coming out these days! :(

    I went there in 2005 shortly after this was created and it’s wonderfully haunting in person. Especially at night!
