I want to preface this with a statement of truth: I don't know what I am talking about.

All the same, I was able to hack together a simple little routine to start a video in vlc from dired and also start an org-mode buffer with a timer at the same time.

The elements that can make what you want to happen happen, do exist or could be put together.  But you are on your own.  Just the same if you contact me off the list I'll send a copy of what I put together (dired-vlc.el) and maybe suggest which part would be useful for modifying to play an mp3.  Interestingly, the routines I borrowed from were designed around mplayer, and they are simple. 

As far as the trigger, I wouldn't know where to begin.

The sleep function would be possible too, but I was quite far out of my depth even in what I had done, and up 'til now I have not gotten around to trying to incorporate pausing into dired-vlc.el, although others have indicated it is doable.
