add the subprocess function

A project log for DJmixer

This is a project of building DJmixer using raspberry pi with four ultrasonic sensors to playback and loop the music, and change the volumn

To play the music in the background, we add the subprocess function to call the music playback while the main function is still running to check the distance data from sensor in order to switch the music.  when the distance reach the given range, the main function would create the subprocess to initial the music play thread.
