On the topic of the existence of a conductor, I agree with what one person said in class, which was that maybe there is an initial conductor which gets taken away as the activty is picked up.

It seems that a conductor is only needed to start the pace of an activity such as the clappingin unison however once it got started the conductor was necessary.

This conductor may not necessarily be a specific person and could just be that eveyone is conducting themselves based on the auditory feedback, and adjustments of whether they should clap faster or slower.
