Haha! awesome! sound-alization on algorithms!
This particular audibilization is just one of many ways to generate sound from running sorting algorithms. Here on every comparison of two numbers (elements) I play (mixing) sin waves with frequencies modulated by values of these numbers. There are quite a few parameters that may drastically change resulting sound – I just chose parameteres that imo felt best.
It sounds like someone is playing on old Atari game. Warning: may cause seizures. Watch it in action in the video below.
