virtual machine sonification

Posted in Smalltalk, Spoon with tags , , , , , , , on 9 December 2013 by Craig Latta

A while back I instrumented the Smalltalk virtual machine to generate visualizations of object memories. Now I’m designing instrumentations for sonification, so that the virtual machine will generate sound as it runs. This could be especially interesting for insights into the virtual machine’s operation, since I think it will run usefully in real time. It might be a useful profiling tool, for example. If you have any ideas for how to map messages and executed instructions to sound, please let me know!
