I have a need to get CentOS 7 sound working on a console only machine. X is not running.

Currently when I try aplay:
aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav ALSA lib pulse.c:243:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect:
Connection refused

aplay: main:786: audio open error: Connection refused

aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 1: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC283 Analog [ALC283 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

So sound is present – I presume pulseaudio is not running as X is not running,

Can I run audio without X ? Next steps ?
running in an ALSA mode is fine with me – but how?
