Hundreds of speakers form sound sculpture

Sound art installations can be hit or miss, but this amazing piece at the Art Museum of Estonia looks like a winner.

The sound moves through the speakers like a wave Michael Trei

My friend Michael Trei sent me these amazing photos he shot at the Art Museum of Estonia. "The Wave," by Villu Jaanisoo, is a sculpture with hundreds of working speakers that play the sounds of ocean waves. Better yet, the sounds move across the sculpture like a wave.

Michael is a pretty serious audiophile, and he was impressed by the sound, so it must be good. I think it looks amazing.

The speakers are powered by amplifiers that Jaanisoo collected over many years.

"Wave" was completed for the opening exhibition of the Kalhama Gallery in 2008.

Gee, I wonder if 'The Wave' would sound better wired with Monster Cable? Michael Trei
