First, I think you should contact the debian-installer developers
to ask whether any music is suitable for during the install. I'm
not sure whether the installer will set up sound systems. Their
web pages are at http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/

The second possibility I can think of is to contact one or more
sound player package maintainers and ask if any are interested
in making a audio-test-data package which sound players could
Suggest or Recommend.

Please note that either way, your music files will need to be
licensed in a way that follows the Debian Free Software Guidelines,
giving people freedom to use, adapt, distribute and share modified
versions of them. You can read more at http://www.debian.org/intro/free

I thank you for the offer and I wish you well,
