Matlab is a matrix-based technical computing program and programming language for engineers. It contains several hidden features. "Load Handel" is a reference to one of these hidden features. This particular feature, also known as an "easter egg," allows users to hear a special audio when a few lines of code are typed in the command window. The audio clip is from the "Hallelujah Chorus" which is composed by George Frideric Handel.
Type "load handel" in the command window.
Skip a line and type "sound(y,Fs)."
Press "Enter" and wait for the clip to play.
