I want my ubuntu server to start playing music when I say the command, just like on iphone... "play [album]" "play [song]" etc.

I also want it to turn on light on my arduino project.

So to achieve this, I either need something already done, or I need to write something myself.

obviously, speech recognition software exists, I found few that seems solid: julious, sphinx.

Any help appreciated with this home server project.
