Being no longer am in the least phased by video camera and/or recording equipment, I just posted a new video on YouTube, a short Rameau work called Conversations with the Muses.  Watching it for the first time I was somewhat astonished as how much my hands move, playing this incredibly small, intimate work.  Would I ever describe to anyone what, why, or how it is to move like that?  
That would be like trying to describe how I think or feel.  It happens simply as a function of being alive, not as a result of anything planned or intentional.  If anything it reflects the speed of what I hear as I play.

So, where did I learn to move like that?  I must have been paying attention to someone, something, some impulse, perhaps.  
You can see the video on the About NG page on this site.
