Yes, I think that the simple creation of a world of laws, relations and
constraints (this can be anything: any equations that can produce oscillations
(ooops, you already get limited!)) would potentially create a "sound state".
i.e. this set of relations create this. Like most of the pianos that is talked
about is the mechanical state of being a mechanical device with resonance, some
non-linear effects, etc.

The funny thing is that most of our mechanical equations (if not all) can be
derived from a sole group of principles known as the variational principles
which represents, this a crude translation, the fact that physics try to
minimize energy and works (the law of the less work). Any abstract mathematical
models that would not follow might be interesting.

Oooh, that's a lot of speculation!
