I think we'd just come up with new ideas, broaden our understanding of music before we ever "run out" of sounds.

But I also think music isn't just a combination of sounds, it's also how those sounds relate to one another. Look at literature. There are styles and themes that keep repeating, but we still come up with new stories because even if we're just rehashing the same story without adding anything new we're doing it with hindsight. So a reader reading a modern story written almost perfectly like a Jane Austen novel is going to read it with the cultural background that they have, one that includes a lot of commentary about Austen and a million other things which will influence how they experience the work and make their experience uniquely different.
