Bell knew, from Helmholtz, that this wave would "express in a graphical manner the vibratory movement of the air while the reeds were producing their musical tones."[20] Furthermore, the vibrations of the individual reeds on the permanent magnet could be summed into a single undulating curve.
Bell knew he could never build such a device, owing in part to the multiplicity of reeds that would be required, but it served as a new mental model, showing him how the undulating waves traced by the phonautograph could be turned into an undulating electric current and reproduced as sound.
