Sea Organ: The Water Harmonica

Croatian artist, Nicola Basic, created a giant instrument back in 2005. The "sea organ" may look like a set of concrete steps, but it's actually an elaborate arrangement of chambers, connecting to 35 organ pipes. Who plays such a large instrument?

The Adriatic sea, of course.

While I'm partial to all of the sounds the sea is making on its own, I am curious as to how nature plays this new instrument- and in particular, how it changes the soundscape of the area. What do the seagulls think?
