If you have JACK running and carla installed (or any host that supports 
lv2) you can use its audiofile plugin.
Simply run:

$ /usr/lib/carla/carla-bridge-native internal "~/Music/nyan.wav" audiofile

Edit the filename of the music file as needed. You can also use the 
midifile plugin to load MIDI files.

Play on/off and seek is controlled with jack transport, so you can use 
jack_transport CLI tool.
