I make multi-layered synthesizer music. Usually I build layers over time. But sometimes I throw them all together at the start. I couldn't make up my mind with this tune so I mixed it both ways.

"octopoo 1" plays one "verse" of the original line then five other parts jump in together and keep going to the end. What I like about this method is that when I listen to it the focus of my attention continually drifts from one part to another.

"octopoo" adds a part each verse until it's full, then drops the first line for one verse before one last fully loaded round. This kind of forces the listener to hear different parts and different combinations of parts with the passage of time.

The title comes from the Phil Hendrie Show. One of his characters thought "octopoo" was the plural of "octopus." What made me think of it was that the process of making this tune was full of eights.

UPDATE, 1-6-16: After listening to them awhile I think "octopoo 1" quickly becomes tedious while "octopoo" (the gradually building version) rocks fox socks.
