about

The memory was found somewhere in the melancholy of a blues chord, but despite the turns it takes, it only finds itself again.

Every variation changes the theme, but keeps the relationship alive.

Fugue: all the material - all the variations - are used as counterpoint. While it's a Blues form, it doubles the harmonic rhythm (12 bar blues to 24 bar blues).

The fugue visits the theme with three nearly identical beginngs, but each one advances the emotional development towards the climax, using different counterpoint material taken from previous variations.
