This quote
***"Music is a greater source of revelation than all of science, philosophy, and religion combined"(Ludwig van Beethoven)***
reminds me of the following story.

According to Hindu lore, the god Shiva appeared to the scholar Patina and played the drums for him. Then Shiva said to Patina, "If you understand the patterns of this music, then you can understand all speech, science and yea even the creation of the universe."

I guess Shiva was endorsing the particle interpretation of quantum mechanics.

Pitch or melody in this sense is akin to the field interpretation of quantum mechanics as it has wavelength. There is another story saying that Shiva created the world by playing the flute.
