I can't answer your questions, Gerard, but I know someone who used to play in an orchestra under Sir Alexander Gibson. He would sometimes conduct with both elbows sticking out and the hands facing each other in front of his chest. Both arms would move up and down in short, rather quick, movements. Someone asked him where the beat was supposed to come, as the movements were so small and rapid. He wouldn't answer.
