You might be interested in Processing. It's Java-ish, and it's very easy to get graphics/sound working. I wrote a tutorial for it (available here: http://www.steveasleep.com/processing-tut/) that won't take you very long to get through and will help you figure out if you want to continue.
Other than that, BlitzMax is easy for beginners, but it's not free. Other forum members will have other suggestions, but those are mine.
