The sound of code

I’ve mentioned this before. My first computer, when I was a child, was a Commodore. Instead of a floppy disk drive it had a cassette player. A tape could contain more than one programs, and I had to remember the exact point where a program started and rewind the tape to that point. And if I accidentaly reset the counter at the wrong spot, there was trouble. Sometimes I would take the tapes and play them in my boombox (yes, those were the days). What I heard was very similar to this:

What you heard is actually what happens if you import an Microsoft’s Paint EXE file into an audio program as audio data.

(Thanks to G. for the tip)
