The Afterword looks back at how this book came about. This book has been empirical in orientation. It has engaged closely with individual musicians, specific musical texts, technologies used in composition and performance, and most importantly, with actual performance. To a great extent, the issues that have been explored here have emerged from these engagements. The project has always been conceived as interdisciplinary. However, the issues that emerged from the objects of study have led the book in many different directions, such as an investigation into sound studies. The book has aimed to open up lines of inquiry rather than close them up. The Afterword finishes by asking a number of questions including: what new forms of musical identity will emerge in the coming years? How will their interrelated forms of existence be configured?
