In a way, there certainly are some examples of "non-verbal" searches.

There are at least two apps for the iPhone (Shazam and SoundHound) that can "listen" to a a song and identify it for you. Presumably, that is, in essence, searching for the song based on the music itself.

Pandora will "find" songs similar to ones you have already heard (especially if you say you like it).

That's not quite the same as a search engine where you can find instances of a tune or a spoken quote, but I would think it's a step in that direction.
