I must say it's rather annoying reading scientific articles stating that data yields conclusive evidence in support of a particular theorom, and the following day reading a different researcher claiming the exact opposite. One day I hear that alcohol consumption in the right dosage is beneficial for humans then the next day I hear that alcohol in any amount is maleficial.
Both base their conclusions on what they claim to be incontrovertible evidence, and this continues ad nauseam. It really brings into question how reliable science is, its rather obvious that bias is hard to remove from the human psyche. How do you take something like this seriously and incorporate it into your life? Some of the all time oldest living humans when interviewed have said that they drank alcohol in small amounts almost daily.

First of all, all the science news sites are driven by money to the nay of the viewer. While the study's authors say that moderate drinking may safeguard people against heart disease, they found that the potential to develop cancer and other diseases offsets these potential benefits, as do other risks of harm.
The report urges governments to revise health guidelines to suggest lower levels of consumption. The study looked at a broad range of risks posed by alcohol consumption, including diseases, driving accidents and self-harm. According to the report, alcohol led to 2. It was the leading risk factor for disease worldwide, the study found, accounting for almost 10 percent of deaths among those ages 15 to For younger people, the three leading causes of death linked to alcohol use were tuberculosis, road injuries and self-harm, according to the study.
Drinking alcohol was also a leading cause of cancer for people older than Despite the study's uncompromising message, some critics say its conclusions may be overblown. Claiming there is no safe level of alcohol consumption is not a compelling argument for people to stop drinking altogether, says David Spiegelhalter, the Winton professor for the public understanding of risk at the University of Cambridge.
Some states have liberalized their drinking laws.
To serve as a guide for listeners, Nancarrow also added chords at regular intervals to provide a temporal orientation. However, Nancarrow dismissed the idea of putting preparations in a piano for this study. It has up to eight parts and resembles the ticking of clocks at different speeds. Nancarrow never liked the piece and was initially willing to withdraw it.
With this study, Nancarrow started to use characteristics in notation other than the traditional ones. This study is a study on note durations, with eight voices being very close together.
It was presumably composed around , and is strikingly similar to Ligeti's Monument for two pianos, written in This study was first performed in Aptos, California , on 27 August and has been arranged for two pianos and for piano four-hands. The last study from is Study No. After this study, Nancarrow decided to go back to the unprepared piano. Nancarrow recorded the piece, but never published the score and discarded it, for he was not pleased with the result.
This study was first performed in public in the same even as Study No. It has three differentiated parts, called "movements" by Kyle Gann , which follow a sequence of "fast-slow-fast". However, these movements are not marked in any way in the original score. This study was arranged for string quartet in This study was arranged for piano four-hands and chamber ensemble.
As in the previous study, the different speeds are alternated between the parts of the composition. Considered one of the most important studies by Nancarrow himself, this study was completed circa and was arranged for string quartet in All of these three studies were given a first performance at the Kassel event, in Summer The longest and most important study by Nancarrow, Study No. It takes up to 10 minutes to perform. These twelve different speeds correspond to the ratios of the vibrations in the notes of a chromatic scale.
It was first performed in Graz on 31 October and has since been arranged at least four times: The other three studies were begun between and , but were completed between and It was premiered in Mexico City on 23 October and was arranged for string trio in The four parts meet in the middle of the composition.

Therefore, the fourth voice ends first, then the third, then the second and, finally, the first. It was finished in It was finished between and , even though it was performed before it was finished. These two studies were first performed in the Bremen event, on 15 May From here, Nancarrow started to work on other creative ways to develop his compositions. It is divided into two parts: This means that the two pianos play the same score, but the second piano starts approximately 20 seconds away from the first, but a bit faster, in a way that both pianos end up simultaneously.
It has been unofficially subtitled Transcendental. It was completed in and was first performed in the Pro Musica Nova event, in A complete version of the piece was first performed at Kassel in Summer From now on, Nancarrow started to fulfill commissions. This is the case of the Study No. It was first performed in Los Angeles , on 2 November It is unofficially subtitled Aleatoric Canon or Aleatoric Round , given that it is a composition for two player pianos, but the voices in the canon can be player at any tempo relationship.
It was completed in and first premiered on 6 December , in Los Angeles. The last commission from Betty Freeman was the Study No. It was initially thought to be a five-movement suite, which would take up to 20 minutes to perform. However, Nancarrow thought it was too long and decided to discard three of the five movements and write another one.
The final composition is a three-movement composition: All of them were composed between and , and were first premiered on 30 January , in Los Angeles, even though the shortened version was finished in The first movement is a boogie-woogie which what Nancarrow called a "spastic rhythm". In the third movement, Nancarrow uses a technique first known to have been used by Henry Cowell , in which the piano makes a very fast glissando only sustaining a few notes of a chord.
Two of the other three discarded parts were finished and assigned the numbers 46 and An abandoned part of the study, later entitled 45d or Discard , is now under the protection of the Paul Sacher Stiftung. It was first performed in Boulogne-Billancourt , on 21 October The final two-piano version was finished between and and was premiered on 17 October , in Donaueschingen. It was composed in The tempo ratios for the three movements of this composition 49a , 49b and 49c are relatively simple, which is why Nancarrow first planned to arrange it into a Concerto for Pianola and Orchestra planned for Rex Lawson , but he never realized it.
The whole suite as a jazz influence, and the structure falls into the scheme of "fast-slow-fast".
