Music Disproves Materialism?

#1
My tongue in cheek email question to Nobel prizewinner Professor Brian Josephson while discussing the Burning Man consciousness experiments:

experiment Brian?

His response: "Just theory -- arguing that mind should be present much more widely in nature than materialism presumes."

"But music disproved materialism a long time ago -- see:

"All based on hard data -- musical scores."

I love this. I love music, tried playing a few instruments but could never get the hang of it. However I am a writer and when I'm in my art I have a true sense of how deep and mysterious things are.
