Jules Verne Remix

The contest continues apace, with farflung, computer-enabled correspondents uploading remixed (more to the point, song-ified) edits of samples from Penguin audiobooks. Among the better recent ones is “Left Right Left,” credited to Quixotic (link). Despite the musician’s name, this is not a Cervantes megamix, it’s a segment of Jules Verne‘s Around the World in 80 Days, specifically the author’s obsessive-compulsive counting of steps and keeping track of the passage of time, set against a rattling drum’n’bass score.
