Sonata is a slick GTK+ GUI controller for the Music Player Daemon audio player.

[edit] Why you want it

Music Player Daemon is a nice daemon which runs in the background locally on a remote server and plays music. Various GUI's (and console apps) for controlling it exist. Sonata is by far the slickest one available.

[edit] History

Sonata is based on the now unmaintained Pygmy[1] MPD GUI by Andrew Conkling and Matthew G. Sonata developer Scott Horowitz story is that Sonata was forked from Pygmy "in order to fix bugs, introduce new features, and proceed down a different path"[2].

[edit] Features

Sonata has all the features common to MPD GUI's. It's also got who features which makes it stand out:

- Automatic remote or local album art - Automatic fetching of lyrics

But more importantly, it looks way sliker than other MPD GUIs.
