Use phone as remote to client without screen

hi,

I would like to use the Music Player Daemon as a music server throughout my house. I have quite a few old thinclients which have an internet port and an audio jack so I was thinking about using these as clients.
However I don't want to attach a keyboard, screen,... to it. I would like to control the music being played on these devices by some sort of application on a phone or on a computer.

I am pretty familiar with writing a GUI for that application but I would like to know which commands to use so that the MPD server knows to which thinclient it has to stream which music.

Is there anything that exists that I can start from?

greetings,

Toon
