Cleopatra VII (69-30BC), from the Ptolomaic Dynasty, had
nothing to do with this structure which dates from the famous 18th
Dynasty, around 461 B.C. (Ramses II may have added to it but Tutmose
III was the original Pharoah of the Obelisk.) The inscriptions on it
are to their memories.) Though I originally mentioned our New York
weather as the cause for the deterioration of the inscriptions,
apparently much of this deterioration existed before being sent
here. Tutmose III was the step-son of the female Pharoah,
Hatshepsut. My original sentence here was: "After her death, he did
everything possible to obliterate Hatshepsut's memory by destroying or
removing her name from her monuments." But since her mummy has,
apparently, just been found, this appears to be an oversimplification.

I am not familiar with Egyptian music and ancient Egyptian
music has not come down to us. Yet there are representations of
musicians in Egyptian art and we might come to some conclusions from
them without knowing what the music actually sounded like. In writing
the music, I tried to give an impression of the immensity of the
Obelisk as well as the choreographic character of Egyptian
hieroglyphics and the enormous influence of the Nile. There is no
intention of being authentic which is impossible, especially in the
case of a piano piece.
