Abstract/Summary/Outline:

This dissertation examines the expressive environment in which musical effects, particularly those that are electronically generated (such as echo), are operated by the improvising composer, with a view to illuminating the role an electronic effect plays in contemporary musical performance. Stemming from the question of why I desire the effect of digital delay, this dissertation aims to assist in influencing future understanding and implementation of the digital delay pedal in music performance through a deeper appreciation for the phenomenon of echo that the digital delay pedal aims to imitate.
