The Amazing Wave Organ in California is an acoustic sculpture created in 1986 by artist Peter Richards, with the help of stone mason George Gonzales. The two crafted this tiered, aural temple from PVC pipe, cement tubes, gravestones, and other found bricks and blocks. It was built to merge into the bay so that seawater from San Francisco Bay would rush in, or wave action would lap at the lower ends of the pipes, creating low rumblings, wheezing, and other musical resonations.
This unusual wave-activated acoustic sculpture gives off subtle harmonic sounds produced by seawater as it passes through 25 tubes. Visitors are encouraged to position themselves on the many stone slabs with an ear propped against any of the dozens of listening tubes. It’s like listening to the world’s largest sea shell.
