A single core memory dump performed on my laptop, with 4GB of physical memory, produced a 6GB file.  To make visualizing the raw binary easier for my computer, I split the file into 273 25MB chunks.  Each 25MB chunk rendered at 6 bits per pixel (2 bits per RGB color channel) and 336px width yields an image 33,670px long.  While going through them one-by-one, searching for interesting visual patterns, I decided to give myself a soundtrack to listen to by rendering the chunks as 8bit PCM audio.
