I do exactly this right now. Check out the package 'pomodoro'. This is my
startup code to make use of it. 

(require 'pomodoro)
(global-set-key (kbd "<C-f1>") 'pomodoro-start)
(global-set-key (kbd "<C-f2>") 'pomodoro-stop)
(global-set-key (kbd "<C-f3>") 'pomodoro-pause)
(global-set-key (kbd "<C-f4>") 'pomodoro-resume)
(fset 'pomodoro " [ ]")

You customize within 'pomodoro' to set your timers and your sounds. I
use a tea-kettle whistle to stop work and a factory whistle to start
again. Plenty of sound files out there to choose from.
