    Here is an example of playing a sound.

    Not sure how you would play it on shutdown.

    Code:
    vlc --play-and-exit /usr/share/sounds/My_Sounds/Short_doorbell.wav
    Ubuntu Mate 18.04 Bionic
    Mate Desktop

    How do you change the startup (log-in) sound? I can't seem to find an option for it in System Settings

    Code:
    cd /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo
    sudo cp dialog-question.ogg dialog-question.ogg.old  # for backup that sound and this sound is startup sound on ubuntu 16.04 LTS as default.
    sudo cp /your/sound/path/ .   # your sound that you want to add startup sound must be that name and file format "dialog-question.ogg". You can change your sound format to ogg with "audacity" program
