Comment:
Deed was composed in Visby for The Pearls Before Swine Experience. The piece is shaped and composed after an “extended palindrome principle” (as in the title “deed”, or in Swedish “dåd”). The flute introduction/prologue is named “insinuations”, and together with the older piece “reverberations” they complete a three-part thematic connection. Deed was made out of an electroacoustic piece made by recordings of the Pearls Before Swine Experience. Though a completely acoustic piece, it was performed at EMS:s (Electro acoustic Music Sweden) 40-years´ celebration.
Alternative title: dåd
