Since I will likely be implementing 'audio' and 'video' types separately I have created a separate issue for video and have changed the description of this ticket to be specific to audio. The video ticket is #1076.

Just some extra information on this issue, it's not simply limited to uploading, all relevant endpoints should be prepared to deal with audio in accordance to the spec. I believe from looking at the Activity Streams 1.0 spec the audio object would look something like this:

    "id": "",
    "objectType": "audio",
    "displayName": "Title of this audio",
    "embedCode": "<html><to><embed></embed></to></html>",
    "stream": {
        "url": "",
    "author": {
        "id": "",
    "url": ""
