There are many possible ways to accomplish what you want. One would be to omit 
/ hide / remove all grobs/engravers that are being used:

\version "2.19.80"

\layout {
  \context {
    \remove "Ledger_line_engraver"
    \hide NoteHead

  \repeat unfold 10 { c'1 }

There are probably more efficient and elegant ways.

Hope this helps!
