This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile29311/The-wave-organ-of-San-Francisco.htm>The wave organ of San Francisco</a></b><br><br>The Wave Organ is an unusual device constructed in San Francisco Bay by the Exploratorium. Using a series of pipes, the wave organ takes the waves of the bay and conveys their sound to listeners at several different stations. The effects produced vary depending on the level of the tide but include rumbles, gurgles, and other more typical wave sounds.<br />
<br />
The Wave Organ sits at the end of a spit of land extending from the Golden Gate Yacht Club. The overall styling of the Wave Organ is reminiscent of Lego, or perhaps the exaggerated Lego scenery at the end of the movie Time Bandits.<br />
