The .pdf is created from the .ps, but given that it's an intermediate
file which in general is only useful for that, you can delete it
automatically by the


option.  Starting from 2.13.4, LilyPond deletes it by default.

The music is drawn internally in the PostScript language. PNG or SVG
images and PDF documents are generated from that PS file, even if it
is deleted afterwards.
