      Are you using AOO 3.4.0 or OOo 3.3 or earlier version? This might make a difference,

but I don't know.
      What I do to play a sound throughout the presentation:
1. In the Slide pane, I click the first slide to select it.
2. In the Task pane, I click Slide Transition to open this task.
3. Click the Sound drop down list labeled "No Sound" to open a list.
4. Click "Other sound" from this list.
5. I browse to the sound file. (Mine was a mp3 file.) The Sound list now shows the name
    of the sound file. As soon as I select the sound file, the "loop till next sound"
    becomes available as soon as the song is selected.
6. I check that box.
7. I run the presentation by using the F5 or F9 key.
8. The Esc key will stop it.
