Abstract: There are many examples of visual program representation, but there is an unexplored area of sonic representation—audialization—of programs. The Thread Safe Audio Library (TSAL) provides the necessary tools to create such program audializations. TSAL is a platform-independent, object-oriented C++ library that provides thread safe classes for synthesizing sound from a program. By adding TSAL calls to a sequential or parallel program, its behavior can be represented with sound. Audializations require a unique interpretation that may greatly benefit auditory learners and other programmers who are looking for a different way to profile a sequential or parallel program.
