As for the hourly chime, I like the 'Theme' music idea for noon, but I think having the Cloister Bell clong out the hours would be more ominous. Also, if this could be connected to a motion sensor it would make an excellent burglar deterrent. (Just imagine someone sneaking up to your house in the night, and having a TARDIS light up while sounding a decently-loud Cloister Bell! )Dino.

There is is a way to add audio to the PI zero which retails for $5, but its more soldering and about $10 in parts and then playing with the OS. But if you did that, used only Web based effects control, and gave up web based Audio control and used the above amps and exciters, you would come in at about $66 for the sound system. Add on lights made from the LED tape for about $16 for 300 lights, $10 for a power supply , and you are getting close to being sub $100.
