Re: Sound head of the 'Moviola'

In the time domain, as Hugh Le Caine used to say, everything is amplitude (displacement). As I understand this, frequency and phase are derived from amplitude in [quantized] time.

But the amplitude does not carry all the information needed to recreate the sound. Similarly, the "Sound-on-Film" entry states:

stereo variable-area (SVA) recording, encoding a two-channel audio signal as a pair of lines running parallel with the film's direction of travel through the projector. The lines change area (grow broader or narrower) depending on the magnitude of the signal.

Again, what encodes the frequency/phase?

Thank you
