Hi Sam and thanks for the details.
Generally I am interested in both, but particularly I am interested in the work of the Canadian animator Norman Mclaren, who used the Moviola to synthesize musical soundtrack to his animation. I plan to investigate the sound production mechanism of the optical pickup (since I find the sound very interesting), and I guess it is mainly influenced by the coupling to the electronic circuit and the electronic circuit itself, producing the unique 'analog' feel of the sound. So any further information (in addition to your suggestions) in that direction would be helpful.
