Doing some Friday afternoon math about the audio files on my computer.
~22 days of music = 80,129,302,838 samples*
Sample values range from -32,768 – 32,768
If each value were to be cut using a standard CNC mill with 0.000125″ accuracy, the resulting object would be:
10,016,162.8″ = 834,680.2′ = 158.08 miles long, and only…

My first supercomputing job ran yesterday: the visualization of every possible combination of the notes of the Nokia Tune ringtone… all 6,227,020,800 of them!
Run using code written in Processing (with the help of Adam Caprez and Ashu Guru at the UNL Holland Computing Center) on the Open Science Grid of supercomputers, the result is ~311,000 image files, each with 20k permutations; the above image is a scant 3k permutations.
