The epilogue details the author’s final thoughts regarding his experiences within the neomelodica music scene as well as his investigations into the camorra. His interactions with the various characters mentioned in this book—while illuminating—are also filled with frustrations for want of a determinate denouement or ending. These people engage in murky affective-aesthetic experiences with the camorra. They are complicit in the more illegal practices of making do in the neomelodica music scene, in order to, perhaps someday acquire a determinate future. Yet few can obtain such futures, but it has never been about ultimate achievements. In the end, the art of making do is about the small accomplishments—about living with the reality of indeterminacy. Indeterminate prospects are, after all, not necessarily hollow ones.

Keywords:   neomelodica music scene, camorra, affective-aesthetic experiences, indeterminacy, making do
