Sound Garden, Seattle

Sound Garden, Seattle

This is something exclusive in terms of looks as well as ringtone music. Situated at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the sound garden produces sculpture sounds. Next to the Warren G. Magnuson Park in Seattle, it was designed in 1980 by Douglas Hollis and also built by the same persona.

Instead of an arch-like design, there are 12 towers made of steel. These towers almost look like a cell phone but they actually use the power of mother nature to produce sound at different frequencies. The horizontal steel blades on the top of these towers produce the sound only when there is heavy wind.

Sea Organ, Zadar

The city Zadar on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast features the sound sculpture body as the Sea Organ. The coast has thirty-five organ pipes beneath the concrete steps that stay hidden. The waves and winds along fill these pipes with air, and as a result, they function the sculpture sound.

The singing coast can be heard easily without any amplification, and with just the power of nature.

Wave Organ, San Francisco

Unlike the other sound sculptures, the Wave Organ is known for producing gurgling sounds. There is a small Boat Harbor in the Marina District, San Francisco where there are 25 organ pipes. Made of PVC and concrete these pipes are located at the seaside where reacting with the sea waves, they produce these sounds. 

Well, maybe you won’t want the gurgling sound as your ringtone, but it is worth experiencing how the organ sounds in real.

Whenever there is a high tide in the sea, the gurgling sound is audible enough. In low tide days, visitors often get closer to these pipes and focus to get able to hear those sounds.

Blackpool High Tide Organ

Blackpool High Tide Organ

This one is 15 meters tall and it seems like a standing violin with the strings. The organ was created to use with “The Great Promenade Show” in 2002. The 8 pipes when connecting to the seawall and the 18 organ pipes produce harmonic music in B-flat.

The music comes more effective when there is a high tide and produces its notes. To get the superior notes of the organ, it is suggested to hear it two to three hours before or after high tide.

Funnel Wall, Dresden

Funnel Wall, Dresden

The second last is the Funnel Wall that looks just as its name implies. In Dresden, Germany, there is the neighborhood “Kunsthofpassage” where this wall is located.

It is built on a multi-story building where there are metal pipes and funnels that form a sound sculpture organ. The organ happens to produce music when the rainwater flows through these pipes and goes to the gutter. So, this can be something worth considering for your next music ringtone and have a soothing rain experience.

The Windorgel produces the sounds of heavy winds flowing through the hollowness. There are various vertical bamboos secured there embossed with the holes.
