    $\begingroup$ We don't allow puzzles to require off-site resources due to the possibility of link rot. Could you make this puzzle self-contained somehow? Puzzling wants all puzzles to be solvable in the future; can you guarantee that the link will never go down? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I understand your concern but I could not attach an mp3 file in self contained way. I can take guarantee link will never go down as long as my google account does not go down. And I believe that it will be the same for future. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Several relevant meta answers with the same conclusion: puzzles really need to be self-contained, unless there is absolutely no other way and there is absolutely no possibility of the link going down. Another concern, for answers: they have to say "this was in the audio file" without any way to check them except for listening to the file (which I don't want to do). $\endgroup$

The word you are looking for is:

Adage

Reason:

The musical notes on the music file follow this order A,D,A,G,E in Concert Pitch, repeated twice. This spells the word. An interesting fact is that an Adage is a short statement which aptly describes the nature of the melody.
