Yes, that thought came to mind when I first started toying with Trevelyan Rockers. Also this effect as if such a surface might propel a hot bearing ball, in order for it to rock/teeter along in one direction.

From the 1800's, this lecture with illustrations brings to mind the bearing ball motor whatever the case is with that motor.

"Mr. Gore has also obtained the rotation of light balls, by placing them on circular rails of hot copper, the rolling force in this case being the same as the rocking force in the Trevelyan instrument."

More on the exploration of the ball bearing motor subject matter trying to see if heat alone could compete with the electromagnetism theory - whether one or the other or both.

Perhaps this would add to the above demonstrations if a Tibetan cymbal were heated too.

Another alloy with the hot versus cold metal ringing effect, here discovered searching for a material for a nose cone reentry material.

Would any rocket scientists know the reason/clarify why ringing would be a desired property of a metal for the nose cone example? Could it be something indicating the metals mixed well?

The ability for nitinol to remember its shape has something to do with crystal structure, and the deformation of it. metal ringing, called a metal cry or twining, also has something to do with crystal structure and the deformation of it.

Perhaps homogeneous mixing was one aspect

"Hoping to hear a clear bell-like ring, indicating that the metal had the properties he was hoping for. Instead, it returned a dull thud–similar to dropping a sack of flour on the ground. Worried that the ingot was filled with internal flaws, he dropped one of the ingots that hadn’t cooled yet. This returned a wonderful bell-like ring. However, after the ingot had been cooled in water, it returned a dull, leaden thud, just like the first one. This is the first indication that nitinol had a substantially different double state. Buehler named his alloy nitinol for Nickel-Titanium Naval Ordinance Laboratories"

Tangent on ringing rocks, maybe of interest ...
"The iron content of the diabase is often identified as the source of the ringing ability. Actual chemical analysis of the Coffman Hill diabase[13] shows that iron content (as ferric oxide) of the rock ranges from 9% and 12%. Although comparatively high for an average igneous rock (3% is typical for granite), it is within the normal range for a basalt. This point suggests that the iron content is not a primary factor in the ringing ability."

Perhaps not all that enthralling, but this simple demonstration was an interesting phase change effect.
