You can control noise with the following cmd:

dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Noise /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player.XXX

For XXX you can put Play, Pause, PlayPause, Next, Previous or Stop

Here you see how you configure a shortcut: https://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/a/370/37
