var Cylon = require('cylon');
  connections: {
    audio: { adaptor: 'audio' }
  devices: {
    audio: { driver: 'audio' }
  workfunction(my) {'playing', function(song){
      console.log('Playing this nice tune: "' + song + '"');
    // You can pass a string with a full or relative path here,'./audio_samples/audio-sample.mp3');
