i usually don't care about making things downloadable (and I would rather things be downloadable), but this music isn't mine (and i don't want to get hit by copyright things) and it's for an academic-oriented visualization (and we're wanting to tie the music into it) so we're also in the process of trying to get permission and/or figure out fair-use sorta things.
@alcinnz basically, it's a three.js-based visualization of a classical piece (grisey's talea, viewable here https://derekxkwan.github.io/talea-vis/ ) that got accepted to a conference and one of the reviewers wanted to be able to hear parts of the original piece when they clicked on the corresponding bit of the visualization (and we were thinking of adding that too but didn't get around to that). so basically we need a recording of the piece (at least bits of it) and particularly with more recent pieces but also older pieces, publishers (music score publishers and record label publishers alike) can get kinda protective of their ip (i made a silly garageband cover of a 100-yr+ old piece and put it on yt and it got taken down by the music score publisher once). so as this is a decently-sized academic conference, we want to make it as "legit" as possible
