The conclusion summarizes the findings of this investigation broken down into the themes of “the absorbed reflective self”, “the absorbed minimal self”, and “the absorbed body”. I show that the question of “who is playing?” can be answered by referring to a minimal bodily, affective, and emotional self and that the sources of passivity can account for how it is possible to perform sophisticated music without being explicitly aware of it. I end by bringing up the interview-based, interdisciplinary methodology, point to its potentials and possible applications, and suggest future directions into which the basic analysis of this entire project can go.
