Of course there are, just not in the standard library.

Wait, there's even a Linux-specific module in the standard library: 
'linuxaudiodev', but it's pretty low-level. This again is Linux-specific 
and won't work on other Unix-like operating systems, like FreeBSD or 
NetBSD, or Solaris, ...

Of course there are many third-party modules not in the standard library 
  that can be used for audio output. I only ever used the one in pygame 
just for fun.

Many of these work cross-platform.

Perhaps snack is what you want:

Multi-platform, same scripts usable on Windows 95/98/NT/2K/XP, Linux, 
Macintosh, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and SGI IRIX.
