A Bugle Call is, according to Wikipedia,

...a short tune, originating as a military signal announcing scheduled and certain non-scheduled events on a military installation, battlefield, or ship.

They are also used in prisons and in large factories, to signal the time for lunch, breaks, the end of the labour day, etc.

I am working alone, aisled from the world, in some hard project, and I use several alarm clocks to rigidly remind me the time to stop working and going to bed and some other moments. This helps me keeping focused in my work without the need to pay much attention to the watch.

But I would like to have a lot more signals at different times of the day, with different sounds.

Is there any Linux software that schedule such bugle calls, perhaps with the possibility to choose different audio files to be played at the scheduled times?
