Pavane played by Tol&Tol
Pavane played by Tol&Tol The Pavane, Pavan, paven, Pavin, pavian, Pavin, or pavyn (It. Pavana, PADOVANA, Ger. Paduana) is a slow processional dance common in Europe during the 16th century (Renaissance). The origin of this term is not known. Possibilities include the word being from Italian "[danza] Padovana", meaning "[dance] typical of Padua [1] (as in Berga Mask), this is consistent with the equivalent form," Paduana " or from the Spanish meaning peacock Pavón (Sachs 1937, 356), though the dance was "almost certainly of Italian origin" (Brown 2001). The decorous sweep of the pavane more sober suited the new Spanish-influenced courtly manners of 16th century Italy. It appears in dance manuals in England, France, and Italy. The musical pavane survived hundreds of years after the dance itself was abandoned, especially in the form of the tombeau. Louis XIV's court at the pavane was superseded by the current. The classical composition Pavane (1887) by Gabriel Faure. (This is a modern version of the Renaissance version.) The classical composition Pavane pour une infante défunte (1899) by Maurice Ravel.

"Bolero" by Maurice Ravel
"Bolero" by Maurice Ravel Ravel's "Bolero" played to scenes of ancient Egypt. A construction management study carried out by the firm Daniel, Mann, Johnson, & Mendenhall in association with Mark Lehner and other Egyptologists, estimates that the total project required an average workforce of 14567 people and a peak workforce of 40000. Without the use of pulleys, wheels, or iron tools, they surmise the Great Pyramid was completed from start to finish in approximately 10 years. Their critical path analysis study reveals estimates that the number of blocks used in construction was between 2-2.8 million (an average of 2.4 million), but settles on a reduced finished total of 2 million after subtracting the estimated area of the hollow spaces of the chambers and galleries. Most sources agree on this number of blocks somewhere above 2.3 million. The Egyptologists' calculations suggest the workforce could have sustained a rate of 180 blocks per hour (3 blocks/minute) with ten hour work days for putting each individual block in place. They derived these estimates from construction projects that did not use modern machinery. This study fails to take into account however, especially when compared to modern third world construction projects, the logistics and craftsmanship time inherent in constructing a building of nearly unparalleled magnitude with such precision, or among other things, the use of up to 60-80 ton stones being quarried and transported a distance of over 500 miles. Average core blocks of the ...
