A project of the Exploratorium, the Wave Organ is a sound sculpture of PVC tubes and concrete pipes capped with found marble from San Francisco's old cemetery, built into the tip of the yacht-harbor jetty. Depending on the waves, winds and tide, the installation emits sound like nervous humming from a dinnertime line cook or spooky heavy breathing over the phone in a slasher film.
