Fugue is a musical term that refers to  a contrapuntal compositional technique in two or more voices, built on a subject that is introduced at the beginning at different pitches and which recurs frequently in the course of the composition.  A skilled musician himself throughout his life Stephenson' sought to find visual equivalents for  musical forms.
