The generall topic is vibrations of an elastic solid. The solution to surface vibrations, or Raliegh waves, is given as, u = A (e^rz  e^sz) sin k(x  ct) w = A (e^rz  e^sz) cos k(x  ct), from "The Earth", Harold Jeffreys, 1923. He says that no other type of harmonic wave is capable of continuous propagation over the surface of a homogeneous solid. The subtraction of one exponential from another is of interest. This would represent, to me, different dampings in (two) different directions. Since this is a feature of every musical instrument; the rather subtle amplitude modulations should sound convincing. One instrument has a large surface area, and roars like an earthquakethe church organ.

Audacity Progam, How and Why The ear does not respond to stationary phase differences, that is, x = sin, y = cos sounds the same as, x = sin, y = sin. On the other hand octave couplings are common on the Organ, so the difference of exponentials times frequency is summed.
