The Epilogue describes how economic and social shocks of the late 2000s, in particular the 2008 world economic crisis, affected local fusion musics in Central Europe. It discusses changes in artistic personhood, musical sociality, creative processes, and connections to the West European musical market; efficiency penetrated the creative process, and more aspects of the individual became monetized. The Epilogue describes how far-right nationalism and its musical expression strengthened in the late 2000s, and how others made musical interventions against these trends. It describes how musicians changed their relationships with large arts institutions, detailing how by the 2000s, intellectually oriented musicians established some connections to the Western European world-music industry and to new modes of musical production and distribution. It concludes that few artistic experiments could continue after socioeconomic shock.
