The Invention en bleu was conceived in May 2020 as part of a video about the invention as a musical form. Similarly to the inventions of Bach and Bartók, it was intended to demonstrate the compositional possibilities of harmonic counterpoint. But in contrast to Bach's emphasis on major and minor tonalities and Bartók's chromaticism built on non-tonal intervals, Invention en bleu concentrates on developing processes from mini-structures such as motives or cells.
