If you just want to play notes, you could look at MIDI.
There's a Python module out there somewhere that reads and writes
And there's plenty of programs (such as Windows Media Playes) that can
play MIDI files or can convert them to mp3 or wav or whatever.
In fact, I used all of these a while ago to enable me to write something
notes = ( "MySong", """
F4 A4 A4 A2 A4- A4 G4 F4 G2 G2 r4 F4 F4 F4 A2-
A4 A4 G2 G4 B4 B4 A4 B4 C'2. r32 A4 C'2 C'2 C'4 C'4
C'4 B4 A4 B2 B2 r16 C'2 A2 G4 B2 B4 A4 F2. G4 E2 F2.
to generate MIDI-files from a simple notes description.
