LED Matrix on Picroft when Mycroft speaks

Greetings everyone! New user here with a question. I am successfully running picroft on a RPI3 and I have a led matrix wired up to it. What I would like to do is run a simple animation on it everytime mycroft says something. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

You will have to catch the messages from the bus for the play and stop events, check this link

Once you get the message you will have to interact with your Raspberry Pi GPIO, have a look here (it’s for a LED but the concept stay the same)

Here is an example of how to interact with a LED matrix using the RPi.GPIO Python library.

Thank you! I’ll give that info a try and report back.
