**Equal Temperament : a documentary about the Peckham Chamber Orchestra
Book your tickets to the first ever screening of Superative TV’s new film here
A public screening of the new documentary Equal Temperament with the Peckham Chamber Orchestra, a community orchestra with the aim of uniting people of all ages, backgrounds and musical abilities. The film traces the working practice of the orchestra, during rehearsals and a public concert at the Peckham Liberal Club, and offers the model of the orchestra as a metaphor for collective action.
The documentary, commissioned by Cinema 6, and filmed using cameras intended to record action sports, is shot from the point of view of different individuals in the orchestra This gesture renders a film without one protagonist, but expresses a radical number of subjectivities. Orchestras depend on a multiplicity of individuals listening to and working with one another.
Superlative TV is very excited to announce we will be screening a new documentary about the Peckham Chamber Orchestra at Cinema 6 next month, more details to follow soon.
There’s also a chance for others to get involved..
Cinema6 is a new neighbourhood cinema for Peckham that will run for six weeks this spring. Transforming a railway arch into a 40 seat screen, Cinema6 will show films four times a week, from classic blockbusters and family films to world cinema and the work of local artists. It will be a place to watch, discuss and learn about film and film making. We’re inviting everyone from the area to be involved in choosing which films to show and to bring ideas for creative uses of the cinema space.

We also screen a programme called Prime Time, in which we ask you to submit- 1. a video you’ve made 2. a video made by a friend/peer 3. a video that has inspired you
Please send files or links to the videos either using dropbox/yousendit or YouTube/Vimeo links.

Superlative TV will transmit the first official pirate broadcast today, Friday 14th September at 9 pm.
The first transmission includes contributions for the Prime Time call out from artists Lora Hristrova, Chris M. Smith and Sara Hibbert, and a call-out to the audience for more videos and ideas of programming, an excerpt from The Gravy, a music show on Resonance FM filmed & vision mixed by Superlative TV, films from George Barber Following Your Heart Can Lead to Wonderful Things and Dan Szor Worried Man in Whitsable and two parts of a documentary which investigates the cities of Britain: Part 1: ‘UTOPIA / DRIFT / LOSS’, a brief introduction to ideas of Utopia. The video explores Situationist ideas of drift and investigates utopia’s close intertwinement with ideas of loss. Part 2: ‘Secured by Design’, a Police initiative that is changing the face of houses in Britain, based on Oscar Newman's idea that crime can be designed out by defensible space - this video uses text from Anna Minton’s 2009 book Ground Control.
Superlative tv is a new television station, launching in the gaps in the airwaves left dormant in the wake of the digital switchover. We aim to create a tv station that could have been, but never was. This will be a station that fills a gap in British broadcasting in the lack of thoughtful and relevant arts & cultural programming, locally relevant programming, public access to the airwaves, and political programming. For a great number of people in Britain, television is still the main source of information, entertainment and (to an extent) education, however there is a distinct lack of accessibility for most people to make television programmes. We are opening up the airwaves for everybody.
