Peru - Jules Verne
Peru was a Dutch electronic music (synthesizer) band. The group began in 1979 with Peter Kommers and Ruud van Es, who used their first names for the band name: PE(ter)-RU(ud). Rob Papen was quickly added. They released many cd's with electronic music, varying from electronic ambient to dance. Rob Papen and Ruud van Es are still active in the producing of music, however no longer under the name Peru.
Jules Verne is amongst their best tracks according to me. From their 1991 cd Moon
Jules Gabriel Verne (February 8, 1828 March 24, 1905) was a French author who helped pioneer the science-fiction genre. He is best known for his novels A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea (18691870), Around the World in Eighty Days (1873) and The Mysterious Island (1875). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. Consequently he is often referred to as the "Father of science fiction", along with H. G. Wells
