This is the process I used for adding music to the Legend of Tux.

Converting to OGG Format

First, find a public domain music file in either mp3 or wav format. Public domain music ensure that there will be no copyright issues. In the future, I may try to compose my own music for the game, but I would rather focus my effort on gameplay right now.

Download, install, and run Audacity.

File => Open

Select the mp3 or wav file

I like to make the level music about 3 minutes. Select the position around 3:00. You can enlarge the view with the magnifying glass button.

Press Play (the green triangle). When there is a pause in the music, press the pause button (double black bars).

Click where the music is paused, the press Stop (yellow square)

Then select Edit => Select => Cursor to End, then press Delete

File => Export as Ogg Vorbis

Navigate to the music directory, and save as levelX.ogg (where X is the level number)
