No longer a show, in fact. A living, autonomous, untelevised TV network, powered not by promise of reward to the artist, but by the artist’s desire to reward the audience.

For the audiences that attend the live screenings, Channel 101 is a chance to sit in the worn-out chair of the fat network exec, drunk on the blood of lowly artists whose right to exist is given in exchange for their ability to nourish. If there are 10 shows in the screening and 7 of them are good, that means 2 good shows aren’t coming back and the power of life and death is in your hands. Base your decision on whatever you want. You run the network. You pick the programming. Then come back in a month and see the next episodes of the shows you picked- plus a healthy crop of new pilots. Dump the whole lineup and start fresh, or keep your favorite show running all year. Unlike “real” television, at Channel 101, what you want is what you get more of, and the day you stop wanting something is the day it stops.

For the creatives that participate, Channel 101 is where the rubber meets the road. The deadlines are unreasonable, the time limit is impossible, the pay is non existent and the judgment is blunt. The amount of ego and sense of entitlement with which you enter is exactly proportional to the amount of pain you’ll experience before you leave. Channel 101 is where you learn three things: How to fail, how to succeed, and finally, how there is no difference between the two. After all, the only thing as bad as being told your pilot failed is being told that your third episode was worse than your second. And the only thing as good as having the number one show is having a chance to come back with something new. In the mean time, you become harder, faster and fearless. You surrender to the audience as life-giving God and acquire total creative freedom through that surrender. You make connections with fellow creatives, you have something to look forward to all the time and for a few shining moments here and there, you’re in the zone and your life takes on a little meaning.

JCDE presents The Black Pirate (Albert Parker, 1926) with live score – August 3rd

The Downtown Independent is excited to be working with the JCDE musical ensemble to screen The Black Pirate (1926) with a live musical performance of an original score.

The film will screen at 8:30 PM on August 3rd

About Jack Curtis Dubowsky Ensemble
JCDE sparks new life with original scores to classic silent films including Nosferatu, The Golem, The Phantom Carriage, Sunrise, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and The Mark of Zorro, for which they released a soundtrack album ZORRO in 2017. A team of top players led by composer and conductor Jack Curtis Dubowsky, JCDE combines intricately composed material and structured improvisation. The ensemble has released four albums and has performed in local historic cinemas including The Art Theatre, The Frida Cinema, and noted venues nationwide including The Tank (NYC), Meridian Gallery (SF), AS220 (Providence, RI) and The Lilypad (Cambridge, MA).

Dubowsky’s score perfectly matched the German Expressionist cinematography and Gothic horror of NOSFERATU. This is not the heavy Hammer Films romanticism of the 1997 James
Bernard orchestration, or even the German post-Wagner romanticism of the original Hans Erdmann score (lost for many years), but a mixture of light romantic lyricism (each character has a memorable musically recurring theme), mixed with sparse 20th century experimental music and musical sound effects.

About The Black Pirate
Douglas Fairbanks stars as a swashbuckling aristocrat in disguise as an infamous pirate, fighting and pillaging. Released in 1926, the film is in remarkable two-strip
Technicolor, and features romance, stunts, and sword fighting. The film was added to the United States National Film Registry in 1993. A stunning showcase for
Fairbanks, The Black Pirate is regarded as one of the most important action adventure films ever made. The film has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
