Synthesizer Saturday: The Sounds Of Sorting Algorithms

sorting0

Sounds Of Sorting Algorithms is a project by Casey Rule that generates musical tones in an order determined by selecting a pitch array, scale, instrument, and then one of the sorting algorithms. Colored bars represent the progress of the sorting/sound generation in a display reminiscent of a retro-futuristic DOS disk defragmenter. Every time I stumble across this it takes a while for me to stop fiddling with it.
