In this video, a youtube user sonifies various sorting algorithms which are often used in computer programs.

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 [...]

Initially based on only mouse and keyboard interaction and single-user oriented interaction paradigms, it now provides multi-user oriented alternative interaction methods thanks to the rapid improvements in technology. However, the technology providing the user [...]

Tectonic is a sound sculpture created in real time by earthquakes as they occur across the globe. A [...]

Alfred Duarte brings us another beautiful “wiimote instrument.” This one is built using Sony’s gesture controller, but the basic gestural control remains the same. In fact, this particular instrument bears a striking resemblance to gestural instruments from the 1980s, in the way that the distance between the two controllers acts as a sound parameter. [...]
