These Waves on the Croatian Coast Can Make Actual Music

On our way to film a story in Croatia, we heard of a 3,000-year-old coastal town named Zadar that made an instrument for the tides of the Adriatic Sea to play. They had us at the name “Zadar,” which sounds like a bar in the Star Wars universe. And so, we went to hear what kind of music these sea pipes had in store for us. It ended up being a dark, discordant piece played by 35 differently tuned organ pipes that made it sound like the Adriatic was in a mood that day. Take a listen in the video above. What do you hear?
