    This photo shows part of the Wave Organ, a sculpture along the waterfront where the action of the wave interacts with a series of pipes to produce very musical sounds. It was an added stop at the end of the SF Thomassons Performance Tour which I reviewed yesterday.

    Neat! It reminds me of gigantic eyes on the end of gigantic stalks, but is still very cool :)

    I’ve never seen nor heard of such a thing, but it sounds very fascinating. This is a lovely shot – the textures and contrast are so interesting.

    WOW!! Not quite what I was expecting ;)
    The wave organ is most unusual looking.
    I bet the sound would be most interesting
    We have a sculpture along our waterfront that looks like a …wave
    (or a giant tongue to some people) hahaha
    It does not “do” anything except provide a place for kids to try to climb :)

    Looks like a bit of a face to me.

    I have heard of this place, but never seen it myself. I can almost imagine the sound it makes during a foggy day.
